...help budding historians get a genuine feel for a particular era. (BBC History, January 2003)
This excellent little book tells the story simply but without condescension and explains some of the causes and after effects. It is well illustrated with photographs, drawings and contemporary engravings. The quotations from people living at the time are well chosen and bring the books to life...splendid value. (Carousel Magazine)
