This fascinating, fact-filled compendium about our green and pleasant land is packed with all manner of information covering topics such as royalty, science, warfare, sport, law, art, agriculture, folklore, and much more... entertaining and enlightening. There can be few books where the Knights of the Round Table, Colman's Mustard, Mrs. Pankhurst, the Corn Laws, Routemaster buses, Churchill, and the 1966 World Cup are brought together so effectively, but this one manages just that.
