'The king is dead...long live the Lord Protector!'. Words to be heard in the 1650's English Revolution. The only man to be not of royal blood to lead England is detailed here by Gaunt. It is an absorbing walk through a fascinating period in history by an author clearly in love with his subject. The reader will find bewildrering where a man like Cromwell came from to wind up as the only non-royal leader in England since the collapse of the Roman Empire. Cromwell's story remains as perplexing and mysterious as Hitler's rise to power in the twentieth century.

The Oliver Cromwell in Peter Gaunt's book is fascinating and riveting all at once. This book made for an easy read. One is kept interested in the seemingly ordinary origin of the only non blue blood to rule England since the collapse of the Roman Empire. It could have led to a good thing: too bad his son was an idiot.
