By Michael F. Morley
History teacher Michael Morley remains fully in control of his subject as the narrative moves into modern times. His eloquence and gentle humour bring British history to life, as before, and add colour, texture and detail to incidents perhaps only previously referred to in headlines.
In this structured and detailed third volume of his masterly series, the author once again conjures a vivid tapestry from his chosen timeline. The range of characters which stand out and the plots and background to events across the decades follow his previously championed chronological framework. For the enquiring intellect, the anthropologically curious and for gatherers of context for their own work, this book and its predecessors promise to be constantly referred to and annotated. A must for every serious student of our island’s storied history.
“It is no wonder that many of Michael Morley’s former pupils have pestered him to publish this book so they might be able to relive his excellent history lessons. (Annette Thornton M.A., M.Litt. Cantab. Lecturer in Classics, University of Reading, 2002 – 2014.)”
