This study offers an analysis of the Civil Wars as they were fought in the kingdoms ruled by Charles I. Between the years of 1638 and 1660 the countries of England, Scotland, and Ireland were engulfed in a bitter struggle. This was a conflict that has had a profound effect on the course of history, the ramifications of which can still be seen in today's political climate. The impact of such a war on the people caught up in it was huge and reached far beyond the battles that were won and lost. This was a political war as well as a military war. It was a war that began as a clash of ideologies and became a battle for identity. With chapters written by an international team of nine distinguished historians, all experts in their own fields, this book provides on the one hand a detailed analysis of how the "War of the Three Kingdoms" was contested in each of the Stuart kingdoms, comparing and contrasting their experiences, and on the other an outline of the various Civil Wars that were fought within these countries.
