Summary
"Thousands of defenceless men, women and children are alleged to have lost their lives as a result of the "scorched earth" policy of Oliver Cromwell, who has long been the most reviled figure in Irish history, regarded as a genocidal maniac and religious fanatic." "Yet, argues Tom Reilly, the traditional viewpoint lacks any solid evidence. Going back to contemporary sources, he examines eye-witness accounts; he also places Cromwell's conduct within the rules of war at the time." "He marshals the facts, and concludes that Cromwell was the first successful military conqueror of Ireland, and that his emphatic success was a foregone conclusion, so inadequate were the Royalist forces in Ireland. In his conduct of the campaign he proved to be more compassionate than some of his contemporaries, and he adhered scrupulously to the letter of the law of contemporary warfare while communicating with the governors of the various garrisons throughout Ireland."--BOOK JACKET
