This review is from: Three Victories and a Defeat: The Rise and Fall of the First British Empire, 1714-1783 (Paperback)
This book should be required reading for anyone who wants an informed opinion over the subject of the UK's role in Europe- what is clear here is that the question "what is the UK's destiny- European or Atlantic?" is an old question that has been re-occuring throughout political discourse for hundreds of years.
The author illustrates that the UK has always performed strongly and achieved her greatest successes by working within the European system, rather than isolating herself from it. Brendan Simms scope, research and prose makes this book riveting.
