This is an excellent, concise history on Britiah History. I use it as a reference book to review the salient historical moments that I read about in historical novels. The book provides enough information to be very formative without going into extreme details - which be quite impossible to do in a single volume anyway.

This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to any Anglophile who has a yen to know more - or has the need to put a particular point in time in context without the larger history of the Country
