For all the myths surrounding Oliver Cromwell and Charles Stuart, there is no detailed account of any meeting between them. Yet they were almost exact contemporaries, embodying virtually everything for which politicians, bishops, preachers, and generals contended. The paths of these two men gradually converged until a frosty morning in 1649, when the executioner's axe ended one man's life and raised the other to the brink of absolute power. In his moving history, Derek Wilson brings to life the politics and the personalities that once shook a kingdom.
