The thirty years war by C. V Wedgwood( Book )

Europe in 1618 was riven between Protestants and Catholics, Bourbon and Hapsburg--as well as empires, kingdoms, and countless principalities. After angry Protestants tossed three representatives of the Holy Roman Empire out the window of the royal castle in Prague, world war spread from Bohemia with relentless abandon, drawing powers from Spain to Sweden into a nightmarish world of famine, disease, and seemingly unstoppable destruction

The King's peace, 1637-1641 by C. V Wedgwood( Book )

The brilliant English historian, C.V. Wedgwood worked for many years on her most ambitious undertaking -- the tremendous story of the Great Rebellion which cost Charles I his life and turned England into a republic. While Miss Wedgwood gives careful consideration to the familiar religious, political, and economic elements in the struggle, her intention is not so much to analyze the causes of the Civil War as to reveal how the men and women of the time thought and felt, and why, in their own estimations, they acted as they did. - Jacket flap

47 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the ruthless servant of King Charles I, Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford rose to be the most powerful and the most hated man in the British Isles, only to be deserted by the master he had served and to go to the scaffold to appease the wrath of the people." "C. V. Wedgwood, one of the greatest historians of the twentieth century, wrote her first book, Strafford, in 1935. Her view of him at the time was generally favourable. It was only when new letters and documents became available following the Second World War that she re-evaluated, quite substantially, her original view and wrote this book, first published in 1961." "Strafford emerges as the most dramatic figure in the great struggle between King and Parliament; the man who, after leading the House of Commons to triumph against the Crown by the passing of the Petition of Right in 1628, deserted Parliament to become the devoted agent of the King. He was the great administrator who made Ireland prosperous but who was overtaken by fate in 1641 when the king feebly sent him to his death."--Jacket
