This series of books is excellent, and this one is no exception, certainly the fun way for children to learn of history through the ages.

I like the series, they are funny and tell some of the lesser told parts of history.
One have to remember that they are written for 10-15 year old-ish.
the author have said that it is difficult not to write something wrong, because the first constants used to be considered the truth, but by the time the rest of the book had been written, those truths had been disproved.
Also a good theme in the books is that you shouldn't always believe what a historian have written, because the winner writes the history.

My son has read just about every horrible history there is. I brought him back this one to Canada specially when I was visiting the UK as it's not available here. I highly recommend these books, especially for boys who tend to prefer non-fiction to reading novels. Educational and fun. Just be prepared for a barrage of facts flying at you after he reads it! :)

My 8 year old son loves these books, and as result of reading them has become a walking encyclopaedia. This maintains the excellent standard.

I found out things I didn't know before and realised my grandparents weren't over exaggerating about the war. Looking forward to a book about the Twsnty First century!
