Cromwell

by Sargord Pirouz on

Not too long ago, I re-watched the movie Cromwell in letterbox. It's a favorite. The Ironsides actually remind me of the IRGC, in some ways. Only the IRGC hasn't yet produced a personality comparable to Cromwell.

Have you read the bio of Starkey in Wikipedia? He's a bit of a loon: a gay political reactionary, with a record of abrasive social interaction. He's really quite out there.

But he does have a catchy style of presenting history on TV.
