Description - God's Englishman: Oliver Cromwell and the English Revolution by Christopher Hill
The classic life of Cromwell by one of Britain's great radical historians.
A nuanced biography of Oliver Cromwell, breaking down Cromwell's life into different parts- fenland farmer and humble backbencher; stalwart of the good old cause and the New Model Army; key figure of the Commonwealth; and finally Lord Protector. Hill leads the reader unsentimentally through Cromwell's life from his beginnings in Huntingdonshire to his brutal end. Hill brings all his considerable knowledge of the period to bear on the relationships 'God's Englishman' had with God and England. Such a detailed understanding of the workings of providence is vital to understanding Cromwell.
