It was too political. In a world of media biased, it was biased as well.
The episodic feel of this book, the dearth of information and one-sided literary illustrations, were a disappointment.
This book wasn’t a “history” at all, but an interesting look at the origin myth underlying the English identity.
These people instilled hardiness and hope in all who came after, giving England the strength to endure and survive all that it has.
