Plot Summary
Summary CROMWELL is an epic retelling of one of England's most bloody internal conflicts, a civil war that pitted the Puritan middle class against the decadent aristocracy. At the heart of this strife was the personal discord between Oliver Cromwell, a landed squire who reluctantly took up arms in the name of faith, and King Charles I -- the British monarch who was appalled by the concept of sharing power with a Parliament.|Cromwell's meteoric rise to power was due to his military genius. He took the untrained Parliamentarian rebels and turned them into an efficient fighting machine by promoting officers from within the ranks, based on earned merit. And when this "New Model Army" faced off with the Royalists -- whose officers were appointed according to social status -- the King's forces were crushed, and the monarch arrested, tried for treason, and beheaded.
