This book is written by the exam board, so if you are a student of OCR (and I can't imagine why else you would buy this) then naturally it gives a good indication of what's expected of you and what you need to cover; however, it is absolutely strewn with errors so do not use this as your only source of revision. Some of the mistakes are fairly trivial, yet annoying - there are a handful grammatical and spelling errors for example - but some are much more serious, and involve incorrect dates and details. The section on the General Strike is particularly haphazard; my history teacher identified about 4-5 mistakes involving the names of unions, and even some of the names and dates of key events are completely wrong - it is clear that this book has not been properly proof-read. So, by all means use this as a guide for revision, but I would strongly recommend Samantha Heywood's book on Churchill (and Best's 'Churchill: A Study in Greatness' for even more detail) over this one for the purposes of the exam.

Very good useful book, very helpful with my revision:) then only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because some of the sentences are very wordy and hard to get my head around, apart from this all good
