Cromwell, Our Chief of Men PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cromwell, Our Chief of Men free pdf No Englishman has made more impact on the history of his nation than Oliver Cromwell- few have been so persistently maligned in the folklore of history. The central purpose of Antonia Fraser's book is the recreation of his life and character, freed from the distortions of myth and Royalist propaganda. Cromwell was a man of contradictions and surprising charm. The ruthless Psalm-singing General of the battlefields was also a country gentleman who, after his victory at Worcester, paused to hawk in the fields nearby- the most decisive and ruthless of commanders was also a passionate connoisseur of music. Of Cromwell's fitness for high office, both military and civil, this fascinating biography leaves no doubt. Under his rule English prestige abroad rose to a level unequalled since Elizabeth I, yet his campaign in Ireland has cast a shadow over his reputation. Antonia Fraser displays great insight into this complex man and reveals a totally unexpected Cromwell, far removed from the received stereotype.
