Synopsis

15. But England possessed two elements of strength--her people, although differing in creed and often warring with one another, were intensely patriotic, and were united as one man against a foreign foe; and the ships of England, manned by English crews and commanded by her great captains--the legitimate successors of the old Vikings--dominated the seas. No enterprise was too hazardous for these hardy mariners to undertake, and no disparity of force ever induced them to pause. Philip was often wrought to frenzy as he saw these bold corsairs capture his treasure-ships and ravage his coasts in sight of his invincible but impotent armies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick conventional history 6 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This little ebook will give you a rapid tour of ten "great events" in history, at least great from a Victorian-era perspective. The book probably was intended to be utterly conventional, even at the time. These are ten key battles that helped shape "Western Civilisation"; heroism and patriotism are the focus. If updated, one would likely add only the Battle of the Somme (perhaps too depressing) and, intended primarily for an American audience, D-Day (not the Battle of Britain, sorry chaps!). Oh, and "chaps", very much so! Nary a quiver of political correctness sullies its sturdy lips. Why read it? Well, it's nicely written and a good quick review. Politically correct or not, the battles still occurred and very likely did significantly influence the course of Western history. A good read to bright kids, particularly if salted with a bit of modernism. At £0.0, who can complain about the price?

3.0 out of 5 stars Why stop at only ten. 30 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book although good, missed out a lot of other just as important events. Events that have taken place since the American War Of Independance, the French Revolution was barely mentioned, The Battle of Waterloo, The Battle of Trafalgar, not forgetting The First World War. The book should have been written in at least two volumes

Given the price, this was good value. Language now a bit arcane in parts.

I haven't read this Kindle book yet but I'm assuming it will be really interesting. I downloaded it to my Kindle as it was a free book.

I used to go to a local library to borrow some books, but have recently begun to download free books from Amazon using my Kindle when I have time. I am very glad that a lot of books are available free of charge. Thank you.
