Cromwell Summary

Cromwell: An Honourable Enemy by Tom Reilly

This controversial study of Cromwell's notorious Irish campaign is published on the 350th anniversary of Cromwell's death. The author's unique opinions are shaped by his home town of Drogheda, the site of one of Cromwell's most notorious alleged massacres.

Tom Reilly says: As author of this book, I feel that many historians in Ireland are not ready yet for 'an honourable' Cromwell - nor indeed are the people of Ireland. I thought that I would change the history books and public opinion about this much maligned historical figure by publishing the truth about Cromwell's Irish campaign. The reaction - among the under forties on the whole - was good, but among historians and the over forties it was bad. They can't seem to accept that an amateur could discover such a fundamental flaw in Irish history ie that neither Cromwell or his men ever engaged in the killing of any unarmed civilians throughout his entire nine month campaign. The facts are there for all to see. But God bless Ireland the past is still the present here and we MUST have our English hate figures - despite the truth. How sad is that?
