Another example of why history at all periods is fascinating. The author almost lends himself to the account of a contemporary news reporter. Are you for King or Parliament? Who will you support? From where will your support come? How will you fight? The book also gave me the answer to a question I always had who was King Charles's greatest friend (Prince Rupert) and who was his greatest enemy (his own advisers). The English Civil War is a great story one side and the other struggling for the destiny of England. The only part that I don't like about the style is that at times the action is only told from one point of view; however this is probably a problem of a lack of primary sources not the fault of the author.
