Books on the English Civil War

Diane Purkiss, author of The English Civil War: A People’s History, picked the "Critic's Chart" of books on the English Civil War for the London Times.

One title on her list:
The Century of Revolution by Christopher Hill

It’s not only the cavaliers who are Wrong but Wromantic. Hill is both, but he’s also passionate and readable.

Read about another book on the list, which Purkiss called "the war’s most beautiful consequence, and its strangest."

--Marshal Zeringue
