This chapter discusses and weaves together the development of diplomatic, military, and political policy. Part of the discussion in this chapter also contests one or two recent beliefs about the process. There is only one thing common to all accounts of the events that led to the second Dutch War: no matter how cautiously he approached it, King Charles II made this war his own and fought it with determination until its end was forced upon him.

Keywords:   military, political policy, beliefs, Dutch War, King Charles II
