  • Excellent

    This is a book that all history students should read. Using well known events from British history, it tell how historical myths are formed (often years after the events). Real history is complicated and disjointed. There is always a tendency to package it into a neat story or myth, leaving out inconvenient facts. There is often an agenda behind the myths. The chapter on the first world war and the "lions led by donkeys" myth or Blackadder version of history is particularly good. No doubt some historians will quibble with some of the details in the book, and some will disagree with the author's (alternative) interpretations of events. But if that encourages them to study further, that can't be a bad thing.

    Thanks for your feedback!
