Read from August 19 to September 30, 2011 — I own a copy

I purchased this book thinking it would make a good history resource and I wasn't disappointed. Each entry concerns a person or group of people who are either British or of the Commonwealth. Though I'm not sure that I agree with all of the choices, the entries are well written and include suggestions for further reading. I've only given it four stars due to my own personal preference, because I found some of the military entries wordy and a bit boring as they discuss military tactics and battles in detail, which I thought could have been summed up in fewer words. Overall, a great resource and an interesting read, aimed more at older teens/adults.
