Description - Defending The Island by Norman Longmate
In a brilliantly imaginative blend of military, social and diplomatic history, Norman Longmate retells our island story from the perspective of its defenders, in a narrative which stretches from the Celtic tribes who unsuccessfully fought against Caesar to the great seaborne deence against the Armada of Philip of Spain. He has gone back to the sources and investigated the original battlegrounds and weak spots in Britain's defences. But the real strength of his book is in its seamless narrative of history, which uncovers the truth behind the legends.
