11. TO CATCH A KING: CHARLES II’S GREAT ESCAPE

Generously sponsored by

In 1651 the Royalist forces were crushed by the might of Cromwell’s armies at the Battle of Worcester. For the next six weeks the future Charles II was hunted by his father’s killers, who now wanted him dead too. Using Samuel Pepys’ original account, Charles Spencer will bring to life the thrilling story of one of the greatest escapes in British history.
