Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0712667113, Paperback)

In a brilliantly imaginative blend of military, social, and diplomatic history, Norman Longmate retells Britain's island story from the perspective of its defenders in a narrative stretching from the Celtic tribes who fought against Caesar to the great seaborne defence against Philip of Spain's Armada. Solidly researched fact is seasoned with lively, humorous, and occasionally gruesome anecdote, resulting in an invaluable sourcebook for the specialist and an enthralling narrative for the general reader.
