I cannot praise this book enough. Not only is it informative, but the historical figures are so well researched that they came across as multi-dimensional fugures-a rarity in most historical writing. When Cromwell affects the Dutch East India Company and, therefore, impacts the little settlement on Manhattan Island, you know that you are really coming to see events on a world stage. Don't skip this one!
