This volume tells the story of the four eventful years which immediately preceded the Civil War, years which transformed the tranquil dominions of King Charles into a land rent by mistrust and menaced by fire and sword. It tells of the rise of the covenanters in Scotland with such leaders as the gallant Montrose and the mysterious Argyll. It tells of Parliament's opposition to the King under the skilful leadership of John Pym. The tragedy of Strafford is linked with the terrible insurrection in Ireland.

Professor Wedgewood had a fine grasp of seventeenth century english politics and here description of the final years of Charles I's government of England is a very readable account of the period. it was originally published in 1955, and was the first volume of a trilogy, still worthy of study today.

Absorbing narration of events and personalities involved in the fall of Charles I. John Pym emerges as an important figure in English and world history. ( )

1136 The King's Peace 1637-1641, by C. V. Wedgwood (read 16 Oct 1971) Since I read the author's superlative history of the 30 Years War I have thought I should read more of her work. This volume deals with events in England from 1637 to 1641, as the troubles of Charles I grew. It is well done, but I am so out -of-sympathy with the religious preferences of John Pym and Hampden that the course of events--and my knowledge that Charles I loses his head in 1649 and that Pym triumphs--bothers me, and I did not enjoy the book as I would one that deals with events with which I find greater sympathy. Not that I do not favor Parliament over King in theory, outside religion. In fact, I do believe I should study the American Constitution in the light of the history which accounts for its terms. ( )

I found this quite a heavy read, but it is essential reading to help understand the background to the English Civil War in the c17. ( )
