When one thinks of British history, kings and queens such as Henry VIII or Elizabeth I come to mind and understandably so. Arguably, the 200 years covered by this outstanding book are the true heart of England... the civil wars, the religious wars, colonizing the world, essentially going from a backwater European nation to the most powerful nation on earth. This is no dry, linear English history textbook; the writing, research, and the author's interpretations of the events are fresh and intriguing.A must read for any self-repecting anglophile.
