An Alternative History Of Britain: The English Civil War by Timothy Venning (Hardback) ISBN: 9781473827820

Timothy Venning explores many of the turning points and discusses how they might so easily have played out differently. He analyses the plausible possibilities in each thread, throwing light on the role of chance and underlying factors in the real outcome, as well as what might easily have been different.

Bristol And The Civil War by John Lynch (Paperback) ISBN: 9780752452142

Bristol And The Civil War by John Lynch (Paperback) ISBN: 9780752452142

In the seventeenth century Bristol was the second city of England. It was the main west coast port, an internationally important entrepot and rich trading centre. Industry flourished, too, with manufacturing and processing industries like soap making and gunpowder production responsible for Bristol's considerable wealth. In consequence, control of the town became one of the chief objectives of both armies during the civil war which raged in England in the 1640s. Beginning the war under Parliamentarian control, the city changed hands twice, with each transfer having a major effect of the war effort of both sides.

The English Civil War At First Hand (Paperback) by Tristram Hunt ISBN: 9780718192013

The English Civil War At First Hand (Paperback) by Tristram Hunt ISBN: 9780718192013

Almost a quarter of a million lives were lost as King and Parliament battled for their religious and political ideals in the English Civil War. England was divided between Cavaliers and Roundheads engaged in bitter struggles from Preston to Lostwithiel, Pembroke to York. Armies were on the march, villages were decimated and great dynasties destroyed: fathers and sons, uncles and cousins were pitted against each other in defence of their loyalties. The civil war led to the execution of a king, the beginnings of sectarian division in Ireland, savage clan warfare in Scotland and the roots of English socialism.
