Article is Fragmented[edit]

This article is packed full of good facts but is incredibly arduous to read. It's so broken up into sections that it's not really connected. It lacks any kind of cohesion. Just my thoughts. I think a rewording and rewritting of this could prove helpful. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 22:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

After waiting weeks for this to have citations added, I have moved it from the article to the talk page as suggested by WP:V

During the English interregnum there were lots of plots and rebellions. What makes this rebellion part of the Third Civil War, yet not the eight attempts between 1652 and 1659 to bring about the Restoration by the Sealed Knot? At the very least this needs a source that claims it was part of the Third/Second Civil War. --Philip Baird Shearer 23:44, 21 October 2007 (UTC)


This article is ridiculously POV. Montrose was the 'noblest of all Royalists', which would be why he allowed the sacking of Aberdeen and the refusal to grant quarter to defeated Covenanter armies? Cromwell is a superhero, described in purple prose. This is a hagiography rather than a balanced encyclopedia entry. It needs substantial revision. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Iain1917 (talkcontribs) 15:18, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
