Reviews

Underpinned by Childs's immaculate understanding of the seventeenth century battlefield, this biography is a hugely valuable addition to the recent renewal of interest in the 1688 Revolution and its context. It presents a model example of the way in which military history can be embedded within broader cultural and political horizons ... There is much to admire in this biography - its scholarly precision, its judicious commentary and its narrative flair - if not, perhaps, in the life of its subject. -- Gabriel Glickman, University of Warwick, UK * English Historical Review *
A penetrating biography ... The book is at its best when it comes to dealing with the reputation of Kirke in broader English culture. Childs is superb in examining the evidence for Kirke's cruelities in the pacification of the West Country after Sedgemoor. -- Matthew Dziennik, University of Saskatchewan, Canada * Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research *
