Another lavish production for Xmas - this time the Wicked History
of Britain in full colour. Re-using material from the entire series
(approx 70%), Terry weaves together a tale of rottenness, rioting
and revolution to give readers a one-stop shop of horror. The
histories of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are retold in
one volume, complete with new material from Terry and Martin.

This book is good. I like the timeline. It goes up to 1999, which is when only England is left without a parliament. Guy Fawkes would be pleased. Very good book. Worth the price. Only bad thing is it doesn't say much about the Titanic, and it doesn't mention a thing about the Lusitania, two very famous boats. Other than that, very good book.
