Hey Everyone,

I'm looking to explore a new (at least for me) area of history: Oliver Cromwell.

So, if you've got any recommended games or books (or both) on the man and his times I would really appreciate hearing about them.

Cruel Necessity is a good starting point.

Oh you seekers of the new who run terrified from history into the clutches of an eternal life where no electric shaver can be built to last.

Cruel Necessity is also a good victory point.

This Accursed Civil War is set in the English Civil War. While I've not actually played it, I have played a few of the other games in the series and they are outstanding.
