The Shortest History of England

Fresh from reading Powers and Thrones, my thirst for history had not yet been quenched. And so I thought a quick recap on some aspects of history would be useful. This book is short and perhaps not quite as good as I had hoped. This really is a whistle-stop tour of English history and one that, I think, could have been executed a bit better. At times, threads didn’t tie together as well as they might have, leaving the text a bit all over the place. Condensing such a vast body of information into such a short book is no easy feat but I still felt a little let down with this one.
