Recent Interpretations of the Civil War



In 1913 R. G. Usher wrote: ‘The English Revolution of 1640 is as much an enigma today as it was to Charles. It is a riddle which has to be solved. No one has tried to solve it because all assumed it was solved by repeating the Great Remonstrance. Every Englishman born since 1800 has … been born into a view of English history.’1
