Oliver Cromwell – Commander of the New Model Army

Oliver Cromwell – England’s equivalent to Julius Caesar

Cromwell was a remarkable commander in view of his late entrance into military activity; he was particularly skilled at organizing and inspiring troops, and was a skillful tactician; he was a sober, moral, and deeply religious man; he was also cruel and intolerant; his death led to the failure of the Protectorate and of republican government.
