There are not many books that comment extensively on the subject of 16th Century Europe which 16-18 year olds would be able to understand and be further interested in. However, the inimitable Sir Geoffrey Elton was the light in the distance that helped myself and the other twenty or so students in my class pass our exams with considerable, and in one case remarkably GR Elton-ish, success.
Informative, arousing and -dare I say it?- exciting, this book was our saviour. As I read it as preparation for an essay or as reference, I could almost imagine GR Elton sitting next to me, reding it aloud like a bedtime story. And sometimes I did want to sleep, given the expansive historical detail contained within, but the whole thing reads like a great novel. Which in my now 21 year old opinion, is how history should be told.

I'm an A level student, and this book has been so helpful in writing my perosnal study about Charles V. Clearly organised, easy to read, interesting and with strong opinions.
