Calling all Cromwellians!

Calling all Cromwellians!

A historian hoping to develop a research project is asking for help regarding British left-wing perspectives on the controversial seventeenth-century English military and political leader Oliver Cromwell.

His central question is: ‘Why is Oliver Cromwell not the British left’s George Washington?’
Why are continental revolutionary figures, such as Leon Trotsky and Rosa Luxemburg, so much more revered by comparison?

If you can help in any way with the development of this thesis idea, please contact Ian Woodall directly via his email address: ianwoodall1917@gmail.com.
