    Not impressed with this book, Horrible Histories do it much much better. This book is full of poor jokes, at time mildly racist, Irish = potatoes, French = frogs and the Germans just can't be trusted, those are a few of the things I learnt from this book. Also the book was far from bloody, it felt more like a recap. I did learn a few things so it gets 2 stars for that.

    Bought this a few years back in Bath, because I'm fascinated by both everything British, and British humour. I never expected this to be handy for my revisions for my British civilisation classes. Nor that I'd go back to it so often. It's funny, it's informative, and the doodles only make for an even more hilarious book than the summary would suggest, and that's saying something.I'd recommend this to everybody who likes British humour, laughing, history, puns.And to all those who hate history and learning about it.

    A very simplified look at England's history. Some of the jokes were funny, however many were overused and not even slightly funny in the first place. Also I noticed a few incorrect facts, such as Margaret Tudor's husband, James IV, being James the III's son NOT Jame's II. Definitely recommend this for someone who's short on time and is interested in England's history.

    Hilarious and great fun. A guide on a roundtrip in Great Britain used this book to tell us something about GB's history. I loved the story so much that I bought this volume and its sequel. Even now, after several years it's still funny to read, because the language is so different from the English I'm used to in English and American litterature.

    This is the book that changed my opinion about History, like many people I had for the majority of the time been taught History at school in a very dry boring way. This book made me passionate about History and I still am now some sixteen years later.

    Very cute and very pithy. Not exactly what you'd call an exhaustive book (or even as good as it could be), but as an amusing pocket guide to everything you need to know about the British until the end of WW2, I've seen much, MUCH worse.

    Gave up on this...not funny enough...better to go back to Sellers and Yeatman who did it all so much better with 1066 and All That: A Memorable History of England

    As a collective gift from a pile of friends from the UK, i had to take this as was intended: on the bog or with drink. However, it held up elsewhere as well. A groovy little romp through the rest of history!

    An amusing, if silly and jingoistic refresher on British history.

    This book was so great to read. I laughed out loud throughout the book. And it's historically accurate, which makes it even better.

    It's the history of Britain over 2,500 years in 150 pages. Lots of names, dates, and places all pointing out the idea that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    A quick and easy read that looks at the truly gorey and bloody history of England.

    Even though I'm not British, John Farman's endless disses of the French will never get old.

    Entertaining outline, still should be read slowly to retain facts - if, like me, you aren't the best at remembering names etc

    If school history lessons were more like this, I would probably managed to stay awake in class.

    Interesting, but still prefer Horrible Histories series by Terry Deary.

    A comical and quick overview of Brittain's history. An easy read for the history enthusiast looking for a rough introduction, with some added comedy bonus.
