      If like me your view of Cromwell has been formed by the Movies especially the 1970 Biopic Cromwell starring Richard Harris then this book provides a brief but good overview of a very different kind of man.A complex man who wasn t driven by our modern perceptions of democracy but driven rather by religion and what was perceived at the time as to how a good King should behave.A good read.
