In this bold history of the men who directed and determined the outcome of the mid-seventeenth-century British wars—from Cromwell, Fairfax, and Essex to many more lesser-known figures—military historian Malcolm Wanklyn offers the first assessment of leadership and the importance of command in the civil wars.

Malcolm Wanklyn is professor of history at the University of Wolverhampton and former head of the Department of History and War Studies.

'Wanklyn provides a useful, well-researched, general narrative of the higher direction of the Civil Wars.' — John Childs, BBC History Magazine

'This is a work of erudite scholarship, which, as with all histories that deserve to be widely read, demonstrates its theoretical rigour in the unquestionable validity if its conclusions.' — Ian Cawood, Times Literary Supplement

“This book with its fine style and intense depth of knowledge and understanding begins to take us down the route towards comprehending the nature of these warrior generals.”—Martyn Bennett, English Historical Review

"Highly recommended."—D. R. Bisson, Choice
