    Page - At his fall, his horse being killed with the bullet, and as I am informed three horses more, I am told he bid them, Open to the right and left, that he might see the rogues run. Truly he was exceedingly beloved in the Army, of all that knew him. But few knew him; for he was a precious young man, fit for God. You have cause to bless the Lord. John Buchan is good.

May 01,  · Ian Gentles’ book (a welcome addition to the British History in Perspective Series edited by Jeremy Black) is the first new biography of Oliver Cromwell in many years. The book contains significant new research, and Professor Gentles presents us with a far more in-depth picture of the private and public life of Cromwell than have previous biographers.

After establishing the Commonwealth, Cromwell – or 'Oliver', as Buchan calls him throughout the book – suppressed the Levellers, the Irish and the Scots. In , five years before his death, he established a Protectorate. "He is a soldier on the grand scale," writes Buchan.
