History of Britain

ByJohn Priestley MA MSc

The author, an Oxford graduate, writes a complete political history up to the year 2010. This book is written as traditional history – kings, queens, battles, treaties, acts of Parliament, dates, quotations. The author sets out to discover who the British people really are, with material on the ethnic background of the population. There is still room for plenty of standard history, including the glorious feats of the English sailors of the eighteenth century, the development of the astonishing British Empire, the long battles to defeat Napoleon and Hitler, the gladiatorial struggles of Margaret Thatcher, and indeed all aspects of the history of the British Isles. There are special appendices covering the American Civil War and the foundation of Australia. Illustrated with photographs, thirteen maps and a set of ten genealogical tables. Review for this book: "Easy to read, brilliant!" John Knapp (Accountant)
