Hal O' the Ironsides Ironsides by S. R. Crockett
A Story of the Days of Cromwell.
Story of the dogs wo war between the Cavalier and the Roundheads in England.
Crockett’s last story. A rip-roaring tale of the days of the great Oliver— days when the dogs of war were let loose in English meadows, when the unbeatable Ironsides invoked the spirit of the God of battles, and “the gallant of England struck home for the King.” Crockett draws a splendid portrait of Cromwell, and depicts the stirring scenes of the struggle between Cavalier and Roundhead, with all the skill of an experienced and accomplished literary craftsman.
