First published anonymously in 1649, this work was originally intended to publicize the events of the Civil War from a Royalist perspective to a continental audience. Later editions updated the narrative through the fall of Cromwell and the reign of Charles II. The final edition was published in 1676. Bate was an eyewitness to much of the history he recorded. A doctor, he was chief physician to Charles I, Cromwell and to Charles II. (He concealed his political beliefs during the Civil War.)
