Description
Treason, plague, two world wars—and that's just for starters—British history is a roller coaster ride of rip-roaring stories, power-mad kings, executions, invasions, empire building, and forbidden love, and all of it in this riotous, irreverent account. Revised and expanded to include the parliamentary elections of 2010 and the British mission in Afghanistan, this edition contains an eight-page color insert so you can see who, what, and where the ensuing historical action takes place.

"The most user-friendly history book around.... Behind the jokey chapter headings there's a serious amount of information."—Daily Express (London)
