Review quote

'This is a collection of essays that are startlingly fresh in their judgements: it presents a whole series of challenges to the entrenched view of Cromwell as a man driven by religious zeal and little else.' - John Morrill FBA, Professor of British and Irish History, University of Cambridge 'This book...contains many useful insights into his [Cromwell's] character and how contemporaries saw him.' - Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research
