The Story of Britain: From the Romans to the Present

Roy Strong

4 Reviews

Rated 0

British & Irish history, Social & cultural history

A fully updated, authoritative and exceptionally readable history of Britain.

THE CLASSIC HISTORY OF BRITAIN, FULLY UPDATED

Roy Strong has written an exemplary introduction to the history of Britain, as first designated by the Romans. It is a brilliant and balanced account of successive ages bound together by a compelling narrative which answers the questions: 'Where do we come from?' and 'Where are we going?'

Beginning with the earliest recorded Celtic times, and ending with the present day of Brexit Britain, it is a remarkable achievement. With his passion, enthusiasm and wide-ranging knowledge, he is the ideal narrator. His book should be read by anyone, anywhere, who cares about Britain's national past, national identity and national prospects.

Richly enjoyable, The Story of Britain will inform and enlighten readers as to how we arrived at where we are today - and why.
