Where does A History of Britain: Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Loved the whole of this book and can't wait to listen to Volume 2, as this book stands up against my favourites, which are usually within the Sci-Fi genre. It is informative, in the level of information it gives, whilst being entertaining in itself, history in every bloody detail.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A History of Britain: Volume 1?

Roman history is one of my favourites and the way it is brought to life with individuals lives of the conscripts from across the Empire.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

this book made me think in terms of what I knew of this countries history, which it turns out was poor, and how the four countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland were inextricably joined throughout the ages. makes me want to look at British history more.
