Cromwell - An Honourable Enemy: The Untold Story of the Cromwellian Invasion of Ireland

Author(s): Tom Reilly

Europe

This long overdue evaluation of Cromwell's campaign in Ireland, published on the 350th anniversary of that campaign, challenges all conventional interpretations. With an impressive mastery of detail, he marshals the facts and concludes that Cromwell's appalling reputation appears to be undeserved. Indeed, during the Irish mission he proved to be significantly more compassionate than some of his contemporaries, and he scrupulously adhered to the letter of the law of contemporary warfare.
