In Civil War, Peter Ackroyd continues his dazzling retelling of England's history, painting a vivid portrait of the Stuart kings, from the accession of James I to the ignominious exile of his grandson James II. In it, Ackroyd lays before us the turbulent seventeenth century, most espically the civil war which led to the killing of the hapless Charles I and the despotic reign of England's only dictator, Oliver Cromwell.
