Wessex Rising!

Douglas Stuckey

ISBN: 1-903035-21-x

The Monmouth Rebellion (1685) and the Glorious Revolution (1688) are two important events in English history which have been unwisely neglected. 'When the Duke of Monmouth attempted an insurrection in the West Country he was defeated as much by the massive indifference of the vast majority of the population as by his own military and political ineptness' (Simon Schama, 2001).

Prince William of Orange was invited to ensure Britains liberties. 'The England of 1702 was a greater, a more united and even a more humane nation than that of 1689; this is the measure of the achievement of William III' (David Ogg).
