Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent contribution to Cromwellian biographical pointillism: it demonstrates clearly that the Cromwell scholarship is a dynamic and living entity. It presents us in so many ways with New Model Cromwell."
- Martyn Bennett, Professor of Early Modern History, Nottingham Trent University
