5.0 out of 5 stars Reads more like a novel than a history book 28 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Hi,
I really enjoyed this and can't believe how long ago it was written, but don't let that put you off. Try it, I'm sure you'll be hooked after the first few pages.

It's quite a short book and a VERY easy read, being written in a 'conversational style'. I'm no history buff and before reading this my British history knowledge was pretty patchy.

I hope this review will persuade others to brush up on their British history knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars A non-PC view of history 24 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A personal prejudiced, incisive account written around the turn of the 19th/20th centuries, an eye-opener for how history was written at that time (all about kings and queens and prime-ministers), totally non-PC from the modern viewpoint, but an interesting read nonetheless. Quite refreshing in more ways than one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many sweeping opinions. 14 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
why does the author have to be aggressive with people that she disagrees with? Can't we be given the facts and form our own opinion?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars As it says, short. 11 Mar 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dated, but a worthwhile read, some areas a bit skimpy in detail but generally still enough to be absorbing and entertaining.

Worth the time!

I enjoyed this book but as the title says a short history. This gives the reader a taste of the history of the three countries but if anyone wishes to do an in-depth analysis you... Read more

An outsider's impartial view of the history of these islands written at the beginning of the 20th century. Revelatory and easy to read!
