The Story of Britain Paperback
Illustrated by Martha Dillon, P. J. Lynch
A magnificent account that celebrates the rich diversity of the people and culture of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
All the great events in British history are here - including the signing of Magna Carta, the Fire of London, the Gunpowder Plot, the execution of Charles I, the Battle of Waterloo, the abolition of slavery and the Blitz - as well as others that are less well known but no less important.
So are kings, queens, adventurers, freedom fighters, scientists, politicians and visionaries, as well as ordinary people who found themselves doing extraordinary things in extraordinary times.
