The definitive visual guide to 5,000 years of British history
The History of Britain & Ireland traces the key events that have shaped the British Isles. From the Elizabethan age of Shakespeare to the Iraq and Afghan wars of the 21st century, this beautifully illustrated book offers a definitive visual chronicle of the most colourful and defining episodes in British history.
Packed with visually arresting illustrations and clear, concise text, you can now explore the long and fascinating story of the British Isles. Includes profiles of key people in history such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Alfred the Great, Charles Dickens, Queen Elizabeth I and Winston Churchill.
The History of Britain & Ireland is ideal as a family reference for the home as well as a key history companion for schools.
To begin with I must confess that I am a massive fan of the Dorling Kindersley (DK Publishing) eyewitness series of books. I love their travel guides and when my children were young the eyewitness books were their all time favorites. The History of Britain and Ireland even has my favorite historical figure on the cover: Elizabeth I.
