[A] superb narrative history. (GUARDIAN)
Royle's account is a compelling reconstruction of two of the most turbulent decades in British history. (SUNDAY TIMES)
Royle's magnificent history cannot be mistaken for anything other than a tour de force. (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
Royle makes excellent use of primary sources, and, being a good historian, he throws everything into the battles (BBC History Magazine)
One late summer's day in 1642 two rival armies faced each other across the rolling Warwickshire countryside at Edgehill. There, Royalists faithful to King Charles I engaged in a battle with the supporters of the Parliament. Ahead lay even more desperate battles like Marston Moor and Naseby. The fighting was also to rage through Scotland and Ireland, notably at the siege of Drogheda and the decisive battle of Dunbar.
Few periods in English history are more significant than that to which acclaimed author Trevor Royle turns his attention in CIVIL WAR. From his shrewd analyses of the characters who played their parts in the wars to his brilliantly concise descriptions of battles, Trevor Royle has produced a vivid and dramatic narrative of those turbulent years. His book also reveals how the new ideas and dispensations that followed from the wars - Cromwell's Protectorate, the Restoration of Charles II and the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1689 - made it possible for England, Ireland and Scotland to progress towards their own more distant future as democratic societies.
