Great Tales From English History Omnibus - Robert Lacey If you want to learn more about Engligh history but you don't know where to start, this is the perfect book. It starts at 7000 B.C and ends at 1953, chronicling the most famous English people and their stories. As an English history nut, I really appreciated this book. It was comprehensive yet simple and was a great sampling of other pieces of English history I hadn't yet thought to look for yet aloe found.
