    EBOOK / PDF [God's Englishman Oliver Cromwell and the English Revolution] Interesting but not to my taste Christopher Hill no doubt forgot in his life time about Cromwell than I would have read but the class struggles of recent times for me were not the same as those of the Civil wars of Great Britain and Ireland For mine the struggle was religious Class had less impact I also found that this book read as several essays pieced together as opposed to a narrative I am in the minority in this view and wo

    EBOOK / PDF [God's Englishman Oliver Cromwell and the English Revolution] Cromwell is undeniably a difficult figure in history He is loved by some loathed by others and his brief “reign” is ignored altogether or treated as a brief intermission between the end of the Civil War and the return of the Stuart dynastyThe book does well to intermix the pertinent political and religious

Unfortunately I can t give this the review it deserves as I don t have it with me to refer to Perhaps this will prove a test of how memorable the contents were In any event I d only read one other book about Cromwell and found this one fascinating It was published in 1970 or 1971 and has remained very readable with only a couple of slightly dated references It covers the life of Oliver Cromwell chronologically before devoting two chapters to his religious beliefs and influence upon historians Give my scant prior knowledge I was especially struck by Cromwell s influence on foreign policy which amounted to launching the British empire God s Englishman also conveys how Cromwell operated effectively as a negotiator and mediator conciliating and making vague promises before turning against groups when convenient He appears to have been very much a pragmatist believing that god favoured those who got on with the job in hand The book also draws some fascinating contrasts between the English and French revolutions and the roles of the peasantryworking class therein The chapter on how Oliver Cromwell has been interpreted by history was a definite highlight A conversation between HG Wells and Stalin on the subject of Cromwell is uoted as follows I cheated by googling this for exact wordingSTALIN Recall the history of England in the seventeenth century Did not many say that the old social system had decayed But did it not nevertheless reuire a Cromwell to crush it by forceHG WELLS Cromwell operated on the basis of the constitution and in the name of constitutional orderSTALIN In the name of the constitution he resorted to violence beheaded the king dispersed Parliament arrested some and beheaded others Touch Stalin touch I only lost the thread of this book slightly at one point in the discussion of religious doctrine otherwise it was highly enjoyable and thought provoking

It is a well written biography and generally is a good introduction to Cromwell You get a feel to the man he is and the conditions of the country he was raised in It serves well in this respect and indeed in drawing the picture of Cromwell However in parts the events are a little unclear in their significance and I would say that to maximise your reading you would need to have background knowledge of the English Civil War and the significant events to understand the references clearly that are made throughout However apart from that it s good
