By Peter Ackroyd
Part of his History of England collection, Revolution makes up Volume 4 and is featuring the late Stuarts through to the Georgian period.
” Revolution continues Peter Ackroyd’s enthralling retelling of England’s history. It takes readers from William of Orange’s accession following the Glorious Revolution of 1688 to the Regency, when the flamboyant Prince of Wales ruled in the stead of his mad father George III, adn England was – again – at war with France, a ware that would end with the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815.”
