This interesting history of Cromwell's life and the influences thereon is written about in the preface as not being too bulky, but actually quite detailed. Oliver Cromwell was a larger-than-life military and political figure, and most biographies related to him are in fact quite lengthy.

The man - it is ever so with the noblest - was greater than his work.' Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658) is undoubtedly one of the most controversial figures in the history of the British Isles. After his religious conversion towards Puritanism in the 1630s, the future Lord Protector engaged in political conduct that was rather controversial. Up to the present day, opinions on him vary widely. The author himself is a descendant of Cromwell and a strong advocate for his ancestor’s work, whom he regarded as a hero of liberty. Being a Regius Professor of Modern History, Gardiner was the foremost historian of the Puritan revolution of his day. In this biography, the author manages successfully to approach Cromwell’s eventful life in a scientific way, without losing touch with Cromwell’s personal view which is supported by historical documents such as letters and speeches.

This book provides an up to date introduction to the main debates surrounding the career, achievements and legacy of Oliver Cromwell. It examines the factors that influenced Cromwell’s evolution from fenland farmer to civil war general and national leader. It examines the following key issues: Why was Cromwell so successful as a military commander? Is it possible to defend the methods he used in his controversial campaign in Ireland? Was Cromwell motivated by ambition or by his religious convictions? Was the Protectorate nothing more than a military dictatorship? What was the nature of Cromwell’s vision of religious freedom? Was Cromwell’s foreign policy driven by religious ideology or by the national interest? Why has Cromwell been a source of enduring interest, both for historians and the wider public?

In Cromwell, award-winning biographer Antonia Fraser tells of one of England's most celebrated and controversial figures, often misunderstood and demonized as a puritanical zealot. Oliver Cromwell rose from humble beginnings to spearhead the rebellion against King Charles I, who was beheaded in 1649, and led his soldiers into the last battle against the Royalists and King Charles II at Worcester, ending the civil war in 1651. Fraser shows how England's prestige and prosperity grew under Cromwell, reversing the decline it had suffered since Queen Elizabeth I's death.

‘Oliver Cromwell’ was written in 1827, but was not performed until 1956. The reasons were its length of almost 7000 verses and Hugo’s gigantic list of characters. The drama tells the story of Oliver Cromwell's internal conflicts in being offered the crown of England. The preface is nowadays considered as one of the manifestos of the Romantic movement.
