The Communist historian, Christopher Hill, is justly recognised as one of the leading authorities on the English Civil War period. His bias is obvious but honestly admitted. Where he is of chief value to Christians is his attention to detail and his honesty with the original sources.

His study of the Norman Yolk is of particular interest in these.

Liked it.
