This book is a riotous, irreverent account of the people and events that have shaped Britain. Always getting those kings and queens confused? Never sure what happened when? Then you need this book. Inside you'll find 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!
- Revised and expanded to include the historical parliamentary elections of 2010 and the British mission in Afghanistan
- Accompanied by access to a timeline and 'Who's Who in British History' section on dummies.com
- This new edition contains an 8-page color insert so you can see who, what and where the ensuing historical action takes place
