Product Description

Review

“Anyone who’s ever encountered a snooty Parisian waiter or found themselves driving on the Boulevard Peripherique during August will enjoy this book.” (Daily Mail )

“Relentlessly and energetically rude about almost every aspect of French history and culture.” (Mail on Sunday )

“Tremendously entertaining ... will surely shift more copies than all of this years bookish Gallic chronicles combined.” (Sunday Times )

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Michael Wheeler on Feb. 19 2012
Format: Paperback
This book should be mandatory reading for all children and adults of English and French descent. It summarizes a 1000 years of bickering between the two nations concisely, humorously and filled with gems of little known facts. Stephen Clarke has a way with words guaranteed to capture the attention of his audience and should serve as a template for future historians.

Good, somewhat funny read . Author appears to have done a lot of research on subjects that can be all too familiar to many and he is not afraid to disagree with historical bias and jingoism. Helpful overview of many historical events familiar to many Brits. Be prepared to reference other books if some thinly covered areas interest you.

This book made me laugh while learning history. What a deal.I've purchased three of them to give to others. I'm sure it would help students enjoy studying.

Hilarious book poking holes into French revisionist history. Lots of factoids here, easily readable, perfect for airport reading on a trip to France.
