Fantastic work, excellntly presented, an Audible classic. i would highly recomond this to anyone studying history or even simply looking to hear a good story which this is full of.
"Superlative history, masterfully engrossing"
History come vividly alive, with people and events throughly analysed and colourfully, masterfully explained. The narration is excellent too. Not to be missed. Brilliant work by one of Britain's finest historians.
This is a very intellectual version of his history that lacks the human element of good story-telling. He seems to miss out things we 'should already know' so it ends up being patchy and full of dense and inaccessible and obscure insights. Just didn't engage with this at all
