This book provides the standard narrative history of the English Civil War. The middle decade of the seventeenth century were among the most disturbed and exciting in our history. The British Isles went up 'like parchment in the fire', a civil war broke out that would kill over half-a-million men, women and children. King Charles I was tried and executed for treason. Monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished almost overnight. After a decade of diverse republican regimes kingship was unexpectedly and peaceably brought back. But things would never be quite what they had been before.
