Year 13 podcast for upcoming Stuarts essay

Hi Year 13

Please follow this link to a fantastic podcast http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/barry-coward.mp3 (featuring Barry Coward!) it might be of interest for your upcoming Stuarts essay on Cromwell as a military dictator. It pretty much debates your question and shows that a balanced answer to this question is essential.

I would definitely recommend listening to it before you attempt the essay.
