Which battle was fought 'For England, Harry and St George'? Who demanded to be painted 'warts and all'? What – and when – was the Battle of the Bulge?In A Short History of England, bestselling author Simon Jenkins answers all these questions – and many more – as he tells the tumultuous story of a fascinating nation. From the invaders of the dark ages to today's coalition, via the Tudors, the Stuarts and two world wars, Jenkins weaves together a gripping narrative with all the most important and interesting dates in his own inimitable style. Until now there has been no short history of England covering all significant events, themes and individuals: this bestselling book, published in association with the National Trust, will be the standard work for years to come.

Good overview

This book condenses British history into a concise overview of the major events and their sequence and consequences. It is easy to read, though I did detect the odd error (Battle of Verdun was 1916 not 17). A good refresher for interested non-historians.

A well written book which makes history more than interesting …

A well written book which makes history more than interesting. It provides an one can appreciation of the whole sweep of English history, which joins up ones isolated ‘bits’ of knowledge of events.

Loved this and refer to it often. Easy to read.

Unstuffy

As the title suggests, this is a quick romp through England’s history but is written in a very readable, unstuffy style which I enjoyed – and learnt a thing or two in the process!!

Good read.
