Overview


An insightful portrait of Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658), who the author says, “stands first, half warrior, half saint, in the calendar of the English-speaking democracy.” This compelling biography examines Cromwell’s early life up through his adulthood to his death. The volume focuses on his personality as well as his career—a career Morley deems contradictory, as Cromwell was named everything “from blood-stained and hypocritical usurper up to transcendental hero and liberator of mankind.”
