BBC Magazine: The Story of the Civil War
Whilst wandering around the supermarket I saw this in the magazine section. From the BBC History Magazine stable this £9.99 special is dedicated to the events of the civil wars. Sections on 'the path to war', 'living through conflict', and 'legacy and aftermath'. A good introduction to the background of the wars including the political ramifications of the Levellers and the Putney Debates. New to the era and want some background other than orders of battle, then this is for you.
