Cromwell Hath the Honour, But...

(Innbundet)
Beskrivelse:

'Cromwell hath the honour, but Lambert's discreet, humble, ingenious, sweet and civil deportment gains him more hugs and ingenious respect.'Much has been written about the first Civil War and the triumphs of Oliver Cromwell. Less is known, however, of the skirmishes of the second Civil War, especially in the north, or of the role and military prowess of the excellent young Parliamentarian commander Major-General John Lambert. Not only was Lambert a brilliant general who demonstrated exceptional tactical skills but he was also a brave and humane leader who was well liked by his men and merciful to his captured enemies, refusing to undertake the harsh actions indulged in by Cromwell. This carefully researched and highly readable new account re-examines contemporary sources to shed new light on Lambert's decisive northern campaign of 1648-1649. Remarkably detailed and supported by maps and photographs, this is an important source for the general reader and military historian alike.
