Review by phoebesmum
“The history of Britain in bite-sized chunks,” it says here, and that’s pretty much exactly what it is. According to the introduction, “… many of us reach adulthood with embarrassing gaps in our knowledge, conscious of a vague feeling that we should know more about the subject,” and this is certainly true in my case. Or it was. Now that I’ve read this book, my problem has been solved!Okay, not really. But at least I have something quick and easy to refer to.
