For years people have been complaining that there is no up to date equivalent to Our Island Story...Patrick Dillon has answered this need admirably with The Story of Britain. It is a straightforward and vivid account, well produced, and with pleasantly traditional illustrations by P.J. Lynch and deserves a place in any child s bookcase. --The Spectator
This highly readable narrative is easy to dip in and out of or to power through in big gulps . --The Guardian
A beautifully produced book with wonderful illustrations ... it really does cover everything ... a brilliant present ... and very good for adults who ve been short-changed in their history education as well! --Iain Dale, LBC Radio Book Club
A definitive history of Britain which tells the story of two islands, Britain and Ireland, and all the people, Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English, who have lived in them.
