'Schama is a giant, a great thinking-machine and a golden lyricist as well.' --- Mail on Sunday

The British wars began on the morning of 23 July 1637, heralding two hundred years of battles waged within and without our isles. Most would be driven by religious or political conviction, as Republicans and Royalists. Catholics and Protestants, Tories and Whigs, and colonialists and natives vied for supremacy. Of those battles not fought on home territory, a great number took place across Europe, America, India and also at sea.

Schama's examination of this turbulent period reveals how the British people eventually united in imperial enterprise, forming what he calls 'Britannia Incorporated'. The story of that change evokes the memory of such enduringly influential people as Oliver Cromwell, as well as lesser known but equally extraordinary individuals.

A story of revolution and reaction, progress and catastrophe, this is a vivid account of two centuries which changed Britain.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
