none of which are atypical to the origin of most every war in
history. Power, greed and fear are the primary instigators that
propel people and countries into the ravages of battle, often
never solving the problem that threw them into war in the first
place. Oliver Cromwell and the Roundheads participation
were instrumental in the English Civil War, establishing a quest

suffered. Indeed, the Roundheads, under Cromwells rule,
were a strong force to be reckoned with; it was as a direct result

as an incredible fighting force. The writer discusses the causes
of the English Civil War, as well as focuses upon Cromwell and
the Roundheads. Bibliography lists 12 sources. Ocromwel.wps
