Strong presents an excellent history of his country, Britain, from its infancy to today. Thorne's presentation is almost understated as he relates anecdotes about government, church, the military and ordinary people's lives. It's fun to learn the little pieces of history that we seem to gain by osmosis through Thorne's appealing and easy-to-listen-to voice, which never becomes tiresome or boring. History buffs and Anglophiles will particularly love every minute of this in-depth look at Britain's long and glorious history. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
