    A History of Britain poses questions that have universal timeless resonance. What makes or breaks a nation? To whom do you give your allegiance and why? Where do the roots of your community lie - in your hearth and home, your village or city, your tribe, your faith? And, finally, what is Britain? Also, listen to A History of Britain, Volume 2.

    Dennis says: "Accessible to the lay-person."
    "Excellent and interesting"
    Overall

    The book proved to be very interesting and quite detailed in its telling of early British history. Its focus stays squarely on England (its Kings, politics, and religious conflicts) and does not deviate for a broader view of Europe. The whole series is a must listen to book.

    A History of Rome is the story of a tiny market town on the Tiber, its rise to world domination, and then its slow, terrible plunge to utter ruin. It is the single greatest event in all human history.

    Overall

    I have always wanted to know more about Rome, than the simple 1 or 2 pages they usually put in the history books. This book and part 1 are extremely detailed in their coverage of Rome's History from beginning to end. And even for all the detail it was very engrossing.

    The audio itself was very clear and easy to listen too. The narrator has a good voice and a compelling way of tell the History.

    An excellent audiobook.
