In the two centuries that this volume covers - between 1485 and 1688 - many of the landmark events described are factors that cemented the character of the nation, and the world, which we know today. England became a Protestant country under Henry VIII; his daughter Elizabeth became the celebrated Virgin Queen; and the discovery of 'the round world' enabled a vast and magnificent continent across the Atlantic to be sought and found. While this new era of global expansion spawned the beginnings of modern America, England was engaged in a bloody Civil War and 'the country sustained a Republican experiment under the massive personality of Oliver Cromwell'. The volume concludes in the reign of William of Orange, the Protestant faith having been secured under a Dutch monarch.
