Ireland 1650 - After Cromwell's lightning campaign the previous year, he is now marching his army in two columns bound for Kilkenny & Tipperary. Having ravaged Drogheda & Wexford, giving quarter to none, he marches on Clonmel with the expectation that the town will surrender immediately. Mission Clonmel is garrisoned by 1,500 seasoned Ulster Pikemen under the command of General Hugh Dubh O'Neill. They intend to sell their lives dearly to the Parlimentarians, who are bent on exterminating the Catholic Irish.

"Its as good a read for adults, but a really engaging way to read about history for older children & young adults." - Irish Publishing News Christmas Preview 2010.

 

"An interesting & innovative addition to the huge range of material available on the period." - John Goldsmith, Curator, Cromwell Museum, Huntingdon, England.

 

"Suitable for ages nine years and over." - Primary Times

 

"As a primer and a way of engaging young and reluctant readers with Cromwells part in Irish history, this is excellent material and a commendable venture." - Inis Magazine

 

"For pre-teens and teenagers, Curse of Cromwell is a superb tool not only to introduce history to a largely apathetic reading audience but also to incorporate non-fiction, sequential formatted books into an existing curriculum. For adults wanting a brief introduction to Irish history that spurs an additional drive to learn more from other sources, Curse of Cromwell succeeds admirably." - Graphic Novel Reporter
