Gardiner : Great Civil War

'Professor Gardiner, in the 2nd volume of his "Great Civil War", has given so much prominence to the character and actions of the Great Marquis of Montrose, that I think an article drawing attention to the Scottish hero as he appears in the pages of our latest Historian of that period, might interest many readers. I can at least write with a thorough knowledge of the subject, as I have not only carefully read Professor Gardiner's volumes, but have been for many years engaged in the study of Montrose's life and times.'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Jennet Pryce      Print: Book


Theodore James Gordon Gardiner : The Reconnaissance

'I will confess at once that I have read the book ["The Reconnaissance"] once only, and that of course is not enough;[...].The subject in itself is certainly a very difficult one because of its deep nature and its necessarily superficial aspects.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Joseph Conrad      Print: Book
