English Civil War turncoats in this month's History Today

Browne Bushell being executed after betraying Scarborough Castle to the Royalists in March 1643.

The cover of the September 2012 issue of History Today features an image of Charles I and Cromwell with the title 'Whose side are you on? Civil War Turncoats'. The start of the cover story can be read here.

You can watch a lecture by Dr Andrew Hopper - the article's author - on the same subject here. Dr Hopper was also kind enough to answer a few of my own questions prior to the recent Fairfax 400th Anniversary Conference about the Parliamentarian leader and the Siege of Colchester - the brief Q&A can be read here.
