The British Empire in 100 Facts Paperback

Part of the In 100 Facts series

Description

Discover the history behind the facts. The British Empire had a rich, varied and controversial history, commonly perceived to have spanned 500 years from the era of Columbus and his voyages of discovery to the aftermath of the Second World War.

Many statements are made about this era that shaped our nation, but what are the stories behind these facts?

Which are true and which are merely beliefs that have grown into fact?

Jem Duducu takes us on a whirlwind tour of the Empire and its history, condensing the gigantic story into easy-to-read, bitesize sections.

He examines some of the most important aspects of the Empire, from exploration and discovery in the era of Elizabeth I, to the Slave Trade, to the eventual decline after the Second World War.
