Yup – it’s the bloody history of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Live in one of those countries? Check out your horrible history! The Battle of Hastings, the Easter Rising, the Great Fire of London: they’re all right here. In frightful facts, foul funnies and (you guessed it) nasty bits!

  • The full-colour horrible history of four nasty nations
  • England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales – in gory bits!
  • Full of jokes, cartoons and quizzes, plus a cool poster
  • A brilliantly engaging way to explore local history

    This is an excellent, historically accurate look at the more gruesome parts of British and Irish history, laid out well and with interesting art. It is suitable for children and adults alike, and works alongside the primary school History curriculum to ‘enhance’ the knowledge of a child. Excellent book for all ages!
