The English Civil War
Far from being a “friendly war” full of acts of chivalry, the English Civil War was a merciless conflict with at least one example of what would now be classified as a war crime, whose scars and impacts can still be seen today, not only physically, but also in the way our society and democracy functions.
Paul explores the origins and causes of the conflict that split families and communities as well as looking at the main personalities on either side.
Audiences will hear about the event which is commemorated even to this day and which made war inevitable, about the main battles of the war, and the military blunders that doomed King Charles to defeat.
Whilst the war is mistakenly thought of as one continuous war, the reality is that there were 3 distinct phases to it. The stories of the main protagonists are recalled and how eventually the Country found peace at least temporarily again.
Finally, Paul speculates on what might have happened to England if the Royalist side had won, and how Britain might have become a very different country than the one we see today for example would the British empire have ever come about?
