ENGLAND: THE AUTOBIOGBAPHY is a unique history written by eyewitnesses rather than historians. It provides an intimate, vivid and revealing portrait of England and its people through the ages. All the great events of the last 2,000 years are here, including the Norman Conquest, King John's Magna Carta, the Black Death, Henry VIII's break with Rome, the Great Fire of London as related by Samuel Pepys, Trafalgar, the two world wars, and the changing social landscape of Britain in the nineteenth and
twentieth centuries. From Julius Caesar's invasion in 55 BC right up to the present day, ENGLAND: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY chronicles the life and times of the nation through the words of the men and women who were there.
