This superb reference work traces the course of Britain's history from the death of Queen Victoria at the beginning of the twentieth century, through two World Wars, to the explosion of creativity and youth culture in the 1950s and 1960s, and right up to the General Election in 2010. Every aspect of history is covered from politics and warfare, to sport, the arts and science. The result is a rich and detailed coverage of a remarkable time in the history of a remarkable people, to be valued as a nostalgic record of the past and as a source of reference for the future.
