Summary
"The Irish and British Wars, 1637-1654 is an accessible and well-documented study of the wars of Britain and Ireland in the mid-seventeenth century. After a period of stability and peace during the early years of the century, Charles I set about carrying out administrative and religious reform in England, Scotland and Wales. The revolution that this prompted in Scotland was to repeat itself in Ireland, and four years later lead to civil war in England."--BOOK JACKET
