A History of the English-Speaking People - Volume 1 - The Birth of Britain
Churchill, Winston S.
In this first volume of his four-part work Churchill tells the story of our island from pre-history to the Battle of Bosworth Field; it describes the strife and turmoil inevitable in the making of a nation. When this volume begins, tribal law was supreme, when it ends, Britain had become a nation and stood on the threshold of those adventures overseas which were to make an empire, and to give mankind a lingua franca...
