Putting history into a perspective, this is an engaging, entertaining and educational trip through time, packing in equal parts fun and facts. Recently updated, British History For Dummies introduces listeners to recent events, including British actions in Afghanistan, and David Cameron's formation of Britain's first coalition Cabinet since World War II.
But don't worry - British History For Dummies doesn't skimp on the old stuff! It's a riotous, irreverent account of the people and events that have shaped Britain. Always got those kings and queens confused? Never sure what happened when? You need this audiobook. You'll hear rip-roaring stories of power-mad kings, executions, invasions, high treason, global empire-building, and forbidden love - not bad for a nation of stiff upper lips.

historical and punnie

If you like British hummer this book is for you. Full of facts, puns and has the feeling like your at the pub hanging with the professor. It's a book that is not in order but rather more like a conversation. Make sure to read though a few times.
