The only thing I could fault this on the whole very entertaining and readable history of modern Britain on was that at times it read more as a biography of Churchill than what it actually was. One cannot deny that Churchill did indeed have a massive role in the period, but some of the lesser important periods of his life were covered in such detail that I wondered if nothing else could have been going on the same time that would have made for a widened study.

Jodie And a pathetically tiny and derisory chapter on the Suffragettes and women getting the vote. I got so annoyed by this I found it hard to continue.
