53 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 921 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

The trial of Charles I by C. V Wedgwood( Book )

62 editions published between 1964 and 2001 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reign of Charles I, defined by religious conflict, a titanic power struggle with Parliament, and culminating in the English Civil Wars, the execution of the king, and the brief abolition of the monarchy, was one of the most turbulent in English history. Six years after the First Civil War began, and following Charles' support for the failed Royalist uprising of the Second Civil War, an act of Parliament was passed that produced something unprecedented in the history of England: the trial of an English king on a capital charge. There followed ten extraordinary weeks that finally drew to a dark end on January 30, 1649, when Charles was beheaded in Whitehall. In this acclaimed account, C. V. Wedgwood recreates the dramatic events of the trial and Charles's final days, to vividly bring to life the main actors in this tragic and compelling story

The great rebellion by C. V Wedgwood( Book )

26 editions published between 1955 and 1978 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Montrose by C. V Wedgwood( Book )

37 editions published between 1952 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For pure heroism and nobility it would be difficult to match the 'Great Marquess', described by Thomas Carlyle as the noblest of the Cavaliers. He seems to many to belong with the knights of epic chivalry, inspiring his contemporaries to remarkable feats of valour and leaving behind him a legend which, fostered by fellow countrymen such as Sir Walter Scott and John Buchan, has endured to this day. This new, fully illustrated edition of C.V. Wedgwood's classic study catches the fire of that legend in recounting Montrose's story. Relying upon the facts, Dame Wedgwood shows her hero against the cultured background of his youth in St. Andrews; carries him through the epic marches across the mountains and glens of the Highlands and on to his terrible end at Edinburgh, which he met, like all his trials, with fortitude."--BOOK JACKET
