A Brilliant Book,
By A Customer
This review is from: A History of Britain, Vol 1: At the Edge of the World: 3000BC-AD1603 (Hardcover)
Simon Schama has a great gift for making history accessible and interesting. Ignore the carping comments from my fellow Scots about the book being mainly about England - whether we like it or not, the history of Britain (especially between the dates covered) was mainly about England. Scotland gets more than a fair amount of coverage in this book.
