The English Civil War presents concisely the essentials of the conflict as a readable chronological narrative, beginning with the causes of the war and ending with the execution of King Charles I. 

Clark examines the celebrated battles of Edgehill, Marston Moor and Naseby, together with the major political events which characterised one of the most turbulent periods in English history. Contemporary documents and leading secondary sources have been used to produce a vivid picture of a time which revolutionised government and witnessed the first faltering steps of Parliamentarians towards the democratic form of government we know today.
