Corrected entry: Cromwell was a general in his own right for most of the war (he is never referred to as 'General Cromwell' in the film as he in fact would have been) and is one of the most brilliant cavalry commanders in British history. He did not need to create himself a general to succeed Fairfax and he did not need Fairfax to control an army that he himself had largely created.
