This book is dry, but informative. It reads like a text book. This book is not just about the wars of the British. I did learn about the women’s rights movement of the 17th century, the infant mortality and slavery of the 18th century, and I learned that Oliver Cromwell hanged Colonel David Synnot during the sacking of Wexford. Possible relative? Who knows?
