In this second volume of short essays, renowned historian Robert Lacey opens with Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and the flowering of the modern English language in the final years of the 14th century and ends with the Glorious Revolution of 1688-9, when Parliament secured control over the Crown. Along the way we hear about Dick Whittington and his cat, the origin of the V sign at Agincourt, The Wars of the Roses and all the pivotal events which have fashioned a nation.
