Overview

No Englishman has had a greater impact on the history of his nation. None has been more consistently misunderstood, misrepresented, maligned. He called himself "Oliver Protector." Others called him traitor, usurper, seditionist, regicide, tyrant--narrow-minded, philistine, hypocritical, cruel. Still others found him broadminded, tolerant, passionately religious, ferociously moral, a wise and accomplished leader, possessed of uncanny insight into the attitudes and actions of those around him. No one can dispute his greatness. But what was he?

The author of the brilliant and best-selling Mary Queen of Scots gives us a magnificent biography of complex, enigmatic Oliver Cromwell.
