Have you ever found yourself watching a show or reading a novel and wondering what life was really like in the Civil War? Did the war really split families? Was Charles I just too stupid to be King? Did Cromwell really hate the monarchy and did Parliament actually ban Christmas? In The English Civil War: In Fact and Fiction, you'll find fast and fun answers to all your secret questions about this remarkable period of British history. Find out about people's lives and how the Civil War affected them. Learn about the role of women and if they merely stayed at home and suffered, and if Cromwell really was always miserable. James Hobson brings to life the tumultuous and unprecedented period of history that is known as the Civil War. An unfussy yet accurate history, each chapter presents a controversy in itself and sets about dispelling commonly held myths about the Civil War. AUTHOR: James Hobson has taught and written about History as teacher for twenty-five years. His first book was The Dark Days of Georgian Britain, a social history of the Regency period. His other interest is the civil war - studying this as his specialism under Professor John Morrill while at the University of Cambridge. 40 b/w illustrations
