God’s Vindictive Wrath – Novel
From the carnage of Edgehill, via Oxford, the clash at Aylesbury and peace talks at Colnbrook to the barricades at Brentford – each character must face the brutal reality of war. This story takes a fresh approach. It is not based on a single hero. It does not take sides. Its voices – ordinary men and women – face each other in the chaos of Britain in civil war. All have answered a call to save England. Now only an English mile separates them on the battlefield.
