This comprehensive encyclopedia examines in great detail the key people, places, and events that occurred during the wars and revolutions between 1639 and 1660, focusing not only on the English Civil Wars, but also on the Commonwealth and Protectorate periods that followed, through the Restoration. While other similar sources tend to be limited to the English, Manganiello documents the large roles played by the Irish, Scots, and Europeans as well as many women who were influential in the development of the period. Biographies include not only include military, religious, and political leaders, but also sailors, writers, inventors, doctors, and rabble-rousers. Detailed accounts of battles and skirmishes with strategic and tactical maps are included, as well as military terms and information on weapons, tactics, uniforms, and flags. Source documents, important political terms and definitions, and religious groups and sects that arose during the period are also included. With over 500 maps, photographs, and illustrations, this massive resource combines into one easy-to-use volume a wealth of information not available in any other source.
