Much has been written about the first Civil War and the triumphs of Oliver Cromwell,but less is known of the second Civil War, especially in the north, or of the role and military prowess of young Parliamentarian commander Major-General John Lambert. This account of the war in the north shows that not only was Lambert a brilliant general,but he was also a brave and humane leader.
