Our Island Story (Paperback)

HE Marshall

-  

Just over a century ago, Our Island Story entranced a nation's children by telling their history in stories. Short, simply written chapters, packed with living characters and thrilling action - and illustrated with vivid colour pictures - illuminate all the main events from Britain's earliest days to the end of Victoria's reign. And its glorious fusion of myth and legend with sober fact - Canute and King Arthur with Cromwell and the Indian Mutiny - is as seductive now as it ever was. 'I was given H.E. Marshall's Our Island Story at Christmas 1936 and I've still got that copy. It was a direct inspiration for me in my career as a historian.' ANTONIA FRASER, DAILY TELEGRAPH 'It is written in a way that really captured my imagination and which nurtured my interest in the history of our great nation.' DAVID CAMERON
