Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I know very little about Oliver Cromwell, but I was interested in reading a good introduction to his life.

It's easy to see that Christopher Hill has written a fine biography, but for someone who doesn't know much about Cromwell and the 17th century, his account is a little hard to follow. He introduces persons and phenomena without an explanation of their status or function, as if he takes it for granted that his reader has already a fairly substantial background in 17th century history.

This is not exactly a fault on his part, more the failing of his reader. But I must say that a book like A.J.P. Taylor's BISMARCK, which I read recently, introduced me to a lot of new information with sufficient clarity that I didn't lose the thread as often as I did with this book.

In other words, if you don't know much about Cromwell, be prepared to back up several times when you read this book. Maybe reading another book about the Civil Wars before reading this one would be your best strategy.
