Publisher's Summary

When a historian says "Waterloo", do you automatically think of Abba? Do you wonder how Neville Chamberlain failed to realize that Hitler was a baddie when the Fuhrer was so clearly wearing a Nazi armband? And why did the Normans fight the Saxons at a place called "Battle"? Did they just see the road signs and think that's where they were supposed to go? From 55 BC to AD 1945, An Utterly Impartial History of Britain informs, explains, but most of all laughs at the seemingly incomprehensible rollercoaster of events that make up the story of Great Britain. Packed with great characters trapped in impossible dilemmas, this true-life drama will have you on the edge of your seat, thinking "I wonder which of them dies at the end?" (Well, they all do obviously. It was ages ago.) As entertaining as a witch burning and a lot more laughs.
