God's fury, England's fire: a new history of the English Civil Wars

Braddick, M. J. (Michael J.), 1962-

The sequence of civil wars that ripped England apart in the 17th century was the single most traumatic event between the medieval Black Death and the two world wars. Braddick gives the reader a sense both of what it was like to live through events of uncontrollable violence and what really animated the different sides
