Real history need not be dull, April 28 2003
A wonderful book, proving that 'real' history with exaustive research need not be dull or focus on minor issues of little interest to the general reader. The author is a great granddaughter of Lloyd George, but it is not biased in any significant way. Interesting portraits of the people and countries involved. While you may not agree with the analysis, you will find it both engaging and well researched by a professional historian. Oxford has done it again, why can't our American Uni's teach historians to write??
