Summary

How the history of civilization could not be written without the inclusion of these iconic men and women who lived lives of service to Great Britain!

This book contains the fundamental history, early influences, life changing events, and lasting impact of historical figures such as Winston Churchill, Oliver Cromwell, Henry VIII, Elizabeth of Tudor, William Shakespeare, Isaac Newton, James Cook, Charles Darwin, John Lennon, Princess Diana, and others!

How did one small island produce pioneers in so many diverse fields? That remains a mystery, but what is certain is the fact that throughout Great Britain's long history, its people have left their mark in the arts, science, politics, and more.

Captain James Cook charting the unknown regions of the Hawaiian Islands and Beatle John Lennon writing songs that made it to the top of the popular music charts were both pioneers in their fields. The Tudor monarchs Henry VIII and Elizabeth I lived when majesty bore a very different concept from that experienced by Princess Diana, yet all three made their marks on the regal state. Winston Churchill was so dedicated to the role of the monarch that he supported Edward VIII in his quest to make an American divorcee his queen; Oliver Cromwell was so opposed to kings that he supported a death sentence against Charles I, but each leader played his part in the British government. Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin, two of the leading scientists of their eras, explored new frontiers of research that have transformed modern civilization. William Shakespeare, who is so much a cornerstone of drama and language that his role can never be completely quantified, typifies the extraordinary contributions of his fellow Britons.

The history of civilization could not be written without the inclusion of these iconic men and women of Great Britain. Join me in learning about these great men!
