From Boudicca to the Battle of BritainBook - 2004
For much of its history, Britain has been ravaged by war and internal strife. Foreign invasions have devastated British society, bitter battles have been fought over social and political rights, and warlords have torn the country asunder in their struggles for dominance. In Battlefield Britain, Peter and Dan Snow tell the story of eight decisive battles that have done much to shape Britain: Boudicca's Battle with Rome, the Battle of Hastings, the Battle for Wales, the Spanish Armada, the Battle of Naseby, the Battle of Boyne, the Battle of Culloden, and the Battle of Britain. For the first time, groundbreaking computer graphics are used to recreate the ebb and flow of these famous battles in vivid and dramatic detail.
