Thanks. I've discovered (TCD web page, it amazing what you can do with
Google) that Jane Ohlmeyer is the Erasmus Smith Prof of Modern History at
Trinity. She is a St Andrew's graduate, and seems to have very strong
connections with Scotland. Strange when I was there it was Theo Moody.
That is a book which should be republished. His Plantation of Londonderry.
The printers was destroyed in the Blitz, and only a relatively few copies of
the book exist. The result is that it is not well known. Haven't handled one
for almost 40 years and I can't remember a lot about it.
Didn't know about the Furgol book Sounds interesting.

Hi Charles, Edward

If you are into the Earl of Antrim the `standard work` I suggest is The
MacDonnells of Antrim" by Rev George Hill (1873). An antiquarian volume
nowadays but very well worth the read if you can lay hands on`t.

Edward mentions Jane Ohlmeyer. She with John Kenyon edited "The Civil Wars -
a Military History of England, Scotland and Ireland 1633-1660 " Oxford Univ.
Press 1998. ISBN 0-19-866222-x. An excellent work albeit detailed.

The Scottish end of the unending wars is well covered by "A Regimental
History of the Covenanting Armies 1639-1651 " by Edward M Furgol, Edinburgh,
John Donald Publishers, 1990. ISBN 0-85976-194-0. Goes into great detail
but quite fascinating when tied in with the Marquis of Montrose and his
brilliant campaigns obo Charles I.

Happy reading
