MONMOUTH'S REBELS
by Peter Earle

The road to Sedgemoor, 1685. In this study of the last major rebellion to disturb the peace of Southern England, the author concentrates on the rebels rather than their leader, the ill-starred Duke of Monmouth. In their attempt to overthrow James II, the loyalty, determination and courage of the rank and file is in stark contrast to the indecision and treachery of their leaders.
