Description

The definitive account of the last great cataclysm to enfold BritainTo an extraordinary extent everyone in Britain still lives under the shadow of the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688. It was a massive, brutal and terrifying event, which completely changed the governments of England, Scotland and Ireland and which was only achieved through overwhelming violence. Initiated by a large Dutch army marching through southern England and climaxing in a series of the most terrible battles ever fought on Irish soil, the revolution by which William III seized the kingdom of James II could only for a very narrow and exclusively English viewpoint be called 'glorious'. Revolution brilliantly captures this great turning point in Britain's history and shows how severe a price was paid to achieve this.
