Roosevelt writes with a passion and wit unseen in many current histories. As a non-professional historian, he is unrestrained by notions of objectivity, and he heaps scorn and insults upon the Stuart kings in a comical manner. Roosevelt obviously admires Cromwell, finding an excuse for almost all of Cromwell's actions, with the exception of Cromwell's actions as Lord Protector. That Roosevelt writes for an American audience is shown by his frequent mention of the American Revolution and Civil War as examples and comparisons. He contrasts Cromwell with Washington several times, although Cromwell did not quite match the character and abilities of Washington. Roosevelt's style is sometimes complicated, but his enthusiasm for his subject and his frequent forays into name-calling make for a highly entertaining biography. There are no citations of any kind, but there is an extremely detailed index.

This was written in the late 19th century, and it shows. I like history texts to tell me who did what to whom. This does a very poor job of doing this. Read morePublished on May 7, 2013 by G.P.S.
