Publisher's Summary

Between 1485 and 1688, England became a Protestant country under Henry VIII. His daughter, Elizabeth I, battled for succession and supremacy at home, and the discovery of 'the round world' enabled a vast continent across the Atlantic to be explored. While this new era was spawning the beginnings of modern America, England was engaged in a bloody civil war and sustained a Republican experiment under the leadership of Oliver Cromwell.
This is the second volume in Churchill's famous account. The series remains a testament to the skill and insight of a remarkable storyteller and historian.

Fascinating and Accessible History

The lucid & penetrating style of Churchill combined with Christian Rodska's involving reading style make this a perfect introduction to English History. A great overview for the amateur including extracts from speeches and documents from witnesses to make everything come vividly alive. One quibble is that there are hardly any index points compared the CD which makes it a little hard to navigate at first.
