On August 18, 1648, with no relief from the siege in sight, the royalist garrison holding Colchester Castle surrendered and Oliver Cromwell's army firmly ended the rule of Charles I of England. To send a clear message to the fallen monarch, the rebels executed four of the senior officers captured at the castle. Yet still, the king refused to accept he had lost the war. As France and other allies mobilized in support of Charles, a tribunal was hastily gathered and a death sentence was passed. On January 30, 1649, the King of England was executed. This is the account of the fifty-nine regicides, the men who signed Charles I's death warrant

Blenheim : battle for Europe by Charles Spencer Spencer( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis XIV had created the largest army Europe had seen since Roman times, and he encouraged his marshals to fight with ruthlessness. For forty years it was unstoppable: no army and no coalition was able to stand against the Sun King's soldiers." "In August 1704, Louis hosted on of his typically lavish parties at Versailles, celebrating the crowning triumph of his armies. But before the fireworks could be lit came unbelievable news: the French and their allies had not only been defeated, but utterly overthrown. A whole army had vanished and its commander found himself a prisoner - of the English." "The Battle of Blenheim changed the course of history. Louis's hitherto invincible army was destroyed in a day, never to recover. And the British were a power in Europe for the first time since Henry V destroyed the French at Agincourt. British soldiers made up only a fifth of the victorious allied army at Blenheim, but their contribution was decisive. They shrugged off their reputation for idle incompetence and showed uncommon ability and bravery. In the wake of Blenheim, the greatest land victory won under an English commander on foreign soil since 1415, the British took their first faltering steps towards Empire." "Charles Spencer reveals how John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough and his friend and ally Prince Eugene of Savoy brought about this incredible victory despite crushing personal and political pressures. Marlborough's son had died in his arms; his beloved wife was on the verge of madness, and the parliamentary opposition plotted his impeachment. His friends and allies urged caution, but Marlborough gambled everything on a single day of battle."--Jacket
Battle for Europe : how the Duke of Marlborough masterminded the defeat of France at Blenheim by Charles Spencer Spencer( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis XIV had created the largest army Europe had seen since Roman times, and he encouraged his marshals to fight with Roman ruthlessness. For forty years, it was unstoppable - no army and no alliance could stand against the Sun King's soldiers." "Then, on August 14, 1704, amidst the pomp and splendor of a court celebration honoring his military conquests, Louis received word that the unthinkable had occurred: his "invincible" army not only had suffered its first defeat in two generations, but had been utterly routed. An entire army of 60,000 men had disappeared and its commander had been taken prisoner by the English."

To catch a king : Charles II's great escape by Charles Spencer Spencer( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In January 1649, King Charles I was beheaded in London outside his palace of Whitehall and Britain became a republic. When his eldest son, Charles, returned in 1651 to fight for his throne, he was crushed by the might of Cromwell's armies at the battle of Worcester. With 3,000 of his supporters lying dead and 10,000 taken prisoner, it seemed as if his dreams of power had been dashed. Surely it was a foregone conclusion that he would now be caught and follow his father to the block? At six foot two inches tall, the prince towered over his contemporaries and with dark skin inherited from his French-Italian mother, he stood out in a crowd. How would he fare on the run with Cromwell's soldiers on his tail and a vast price on his head? The next six weeks would form the most memorable and dramatic of Charles' life. Pursued relentlessly, Charles ran using disguise, deception and relying on grit, fortitude and good luck. He suffered grievously through weeks when his cause seemed hopeless. He hid in an oak tree - an event so fabled that over 400 English pubs are named Royal Oak in commemoration. Less well-known events include his witnessing a village in wild celebrations at the erroneous news of his killing; the ordeal of a medical student wrongly imprisoned because of his similarity in looks; he disguised himself as a servant and as one half of an eloping couple. Once restored to the throne as Charles II, he told the tale of his escapades to Samuel Pepys, who transcribed it all."--Publisher description

Field Quality And Magnetic Center Stability Achieved in a Variable Permanent Magnet Quadrupole for the ILC( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superstrong permanent magnet quadrupole (PMQ) is one of the candidates for the final focus lens for the International Linear Collider (ILC). Our prototype PMQ can produce variable strengths from 3.5T to 24.2T in 1.4T steps. The magnetic center of the PMQ must not move more than a few microns during a 20% strength change to enable a Beam-Based Alignment (BBA) process to work. Our PMQ can be mechanically adjusted to suppress the center movement from more than 30{micro}m to less than 10{micro}m during strength changes
