The Very Bloody History Of Britain, 2

The Last Bit!




A marvellously irreverent guide, packed full of amazing information that gives exceptional insight into every aspect of post war Britain.

From post-war rationing to the glut of the Thatcher years, from Harold Macmillan's famous 'You've never had it so good' to the winter of discontent, this book contains the essential stuff of modem history. As Britain gets the bomb, CND starts up to ban it. As the cold war years roll on, many a politician is caught with a face as red as the Russian flag. Further afield there's trouble in Cyprus, a crisis over Suez and a serious argument brewing over Icelandic cod! At home the poor old royal family spirals inexorably towards their annus horribilis.
