The Gunpowder Plot
Sutton, 2001 - 184 pages
In this general study of the gunpowder plot in its historical context, Alan Haynes uncovers the truth about this Catholic conspiracy. Who was Guy Fawkes and how did he come to be below the chamber of the House of Lords in the first hour of 5 November 1605? What desperation drove those involved to plan a horrific massacre of the Protestant royal family and government? Haynes's analysis offers a clear, balanced view of often conflicting evidence, as he disentangles the threads of disharmony, intrigue, betrayal, terror and retribution.
