Amateur historian Tom Reilly has almost single-handedly taken on the might of academia with regard to Cromwell and allegations of his complicity in civilian atrocity stories in Ireland. Change that, and you change so much about our understanding of Cromwell.
He has appeared on national TV and radio in both the UK and Ireland in both documentaries and chat shows. His previous book on Cromwell has been reviewed by all of the national newspapers in Ireland and many in the UK including one on the front cover of the book supplement of the Sunday Times. He lives in County Louth, Ireland.
