en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 2001
In a brilliantly imaginative blend of military, social and diplomatic history, Norman Longmate retells Britain's island story from the perspective of its defenders in a narrative stretching from the Celtic tribes who fought against Caesar to the great seaborne defence against Philip of Spain's Armada. Solidly researched fact is seasoned with lively, humorous and occasionally gruesome anecdote, resulting in an invaluable source-book for the specialist and an enthralling narrative for the general reader.

Notă biografică

Norman Lonmate is the author of more than twenty books on the Second World War and Victorian social history.


"Here is a book Shakespeare would have loved - a fine, old-fashioned, drum-beating history of our island fortress... Longmate weaves the medieval chronicles into a compelling modern story, full of rich and often blood-curdling detail" -- Piers Brendon Mail on Sunday "A rich history of the invasions of Britain... that, by relying on the words of contemporary historians, possess a freshness and immediacy" Sunday Times "An enthralling account of the defence of Britain... a solid and conscientious piece of work" -- Jan Morris Independent "A fascinating work" Sunday Express
