5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Dec 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
All the books in this series are great! They present history in an interesting, humourous form. You can learn a lot about history and not even realize you're learning. If you're tired of dry, boring textbooks but still want to learn about history, these books are for you! (If you're British, this may not be the book for you, because even though the author is British, he doesn't hesitate to say the bad things about the British empire.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An accurate representation of British Rule - as seen from the other side Aug. 15 2013
By Shubhang Shankar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All the points made in this book are accurate and I can only laugh at the 2 poor reviews given to this book by obviously outraged Brits who don't have any idea of how truly horrible their Empire was. On an absolute scale, the Empire did more damage to more people than the Nazis. It was infinitely more evil about time someone portrayed it correctly

1.0 out of 5 stars Smug, lazy and shallow. Sept. 1 2009

Format:Paperback
Big fan of the "Horrible Histories" series and love Martin as an illustrator; but sorry, this one is just junk.
