Summary
  • "It was a time of bitterness and hatred, a war which pitched father against son, brother against brother in the bloody battle for the soul of the nation. It was winner takes all. After seven years of turmoil, even the dramatic execution of King Charles I could not bring peace, more bloodshed still lay ahead. The most tragic and dramatic chapter in English history is recorded in this spectacular and entertaining DVD. It features superb battle re-enactments and reconstructions, dramatised 'eyewitness' accounts and delightful period imagery to chronicle the events, the major personalities and the battles of the war. The programme also includes 3D computer graphics and expert analysis from leading historians to tell the story of the English Civil Wars. Narrated by Robert Powell."--Publisher's website
  • A study of the 17th-century struggle between Parliamentarian and Royalist forces, which led to the execution of King Charles I and a brief period of republican government. With animated maps, brief excerpts of reenactments, and analysis by four military historians
