This book presents essential British words and deeds, dates and phrases, songs, speeches and commandments from Stonehenge to the present day in one simple book. No judgement, no padding, just the bare bones of our glorious history, brought to life by soul-stirring quotations that still echo down the ages. Presenting complex information in the form of simple time-lines, setting key events in British history alongside those of world history, this book allows readers to view history in an astonishingly simple way. Courtauld reveals fascinating parallels: as Britain perfects the long bow, gunpowder reaches Europe; as Henry VIII celebrates his marriage to Anne Boleyn, the Inca Empire collapses. With over 100 full colour photographs, this winning book will delight anyone who is intrigued by the history of our isles and would like to know a little more.

Author Biography - George Courtauld

George Courtauld read Philosophy at Cambridge. The son of the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex, he has been a headhunter for 12 years. His gift for history was discovered when he compiled a list of historical events for his sons to hang in their bathroom. It evolved in the bestselling Pocket Book of Patriotism, followed a year later by the Pocket Book of Patriots. He lives in Pebmarsh, near Colchester, Essex, and is married with three young boys.
