Which battle was fought 'For England, Harry and St George'? Who demanded to be painted 'warts and all'? What - and when - was the Battle of the Bulge?

In A Short History of England, bestselling author Simon Jenkins answers all these questions - and many more - as he tells the tumultuous story of a fascinating nation. From the invaders of the dark ages to today's coalition, via the Tudors, the Stuarts and two world wars, Jenkins weaves together a gripping narrative with all the most important and interesting dates in his own inimitable style.

Until now there has been no short history of England covering all significant events, themes and individuals: this bestselling book, published in association with the National Trust, will be the standard work for years to come.


  • Rubbish!

    By Tony-Maloney
    I should have taken note of other reviews, but thought by having the latest iBooks set up I would be safe.........wrong! The book may be excellent, but via iPad it doesn't work well at all. You cant adjust font size etc, making it very difficult to read unless you feel that small print is doable for you. For me it's a headache in the making and very dissatisfied with the purchase. So I'll buy the real book instead and have this ibook purchase credited as it's not fit for purpose.
  • Do not buy - terrible ebook

    By lucmarshall
    The content of the book is great but the experience is awful. It is not a proper ebook and none of the usual options such as text size, bookmarks etc work. The size of the text is microscopic and strains my eyes. The table of contents is clearly a mistake as it must be for another book. The table of contents they include in this book are below: Chapter one hanging out Chapter two remembering Chapter three finding your voice Chapter four growing Chapter five giving Chapter six doing it yourself Also the ebook crashes regularly and loses your page so you constantly have to find the page you are up to. Very disappointed!

    This book is one of those that crashes iBooks so don't buy and waste your money. Crashes iBook ver 1.3 on iPhone 4 & iPad 2.
  • Does work!

    @Mick Abrahams this book definitely works fine, we have checked and double checked. We have also spoken to the support team and they say it may be because you have an old version of iBooks or iOS, so try updating. Hope you enjoy!
