This self-published sensation sold over 120,000 copies in one month in Great Britain. George Courtauld wrote it when he discovered one evening that his three young boys had history questions even he couldn't answer. So, he set out to create a simple book that would outline the basic facts and make his children proud of their heritage. What he produced is a uniquely British, thoroughly fascinating timeline of events, with no judgment or padding, brought to life by soul-stirring quotations. Major moments in British history are placed alongside coinciding world events in an easy-to-read format. From the building of Stonehenge to England's rugby World Cup victory in 2003, from the rule of Henry VIII to the death of Princess Diana, The Pocket Book of British Patriotism covers all of Britain's essential dates, quotes, and speeches--and has proven itself a must-read for every historian, trivia buff, and Anglophile alike.
