To Kill A King

To Kill A King (2003)

1 corrected entry

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.

Correction: It is incorrect to say that Cromwell did not need Fairfax to control an army that he himself had largely created. Fairfax was made Lord General of the New Model Army at its formation in 1645, with Cromwell as Leiutenant General of the Horse, and he continued as Lord General until well into Cromwell's Protectorate.
