MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford and author of the acclaimed History of Christianity, reveals the background to the most complete and persuasive life ever written of this elusive figure, a masterclass in historical detective work, making connections not previously seen, and for the first time reveals Cromwell’s true place in the making of modern England and Ireland, for good and ill.
