Cromwell - Conquering the emerald isle 1641-1650 [DVD]

Preisvergleich Produktbild Cromwell - Conquering the emerald isle 1641-1650 [DVD]
He called himself Oliver Protector, while others called him traitor, usurper, hypocritical and cruel. But he was also known as broad-minded, tolerant, passionately religious and ferociously moral. Cromwell's influence as a military commander and politician during the English Civil War between 1642 and 1651 dramatically altered the political landscape of the British Isles. His suppression of the Royalists in Ireland during 1649 still has a strong resonance for many Irish people. Cromwell felt justified in ordering the massacre of nearly 3, 500 soldiers and civilians, including prisoners and Catholic priests, because they had continued to defend the city of Drogheda after the walls had been breached. This was in violation of what were then the norms of warfare. Cromwell was only in Ireland for 40 weeks, but his bloody, brutal campaign cast a long and ugly shadow.
