1066 And All That
The best history book you're ever likely to read. Extraordinarily clever, witty and funny. I bought it as a present for a cousin. She loved it and insisted on reading whole chapters aloud to her family as soon as she had unwrapped it, though from time to time she had to stop reading because she was laughing so much. No historian should be without a copy.

1066 And All That - A "Good Thing"
Very funny book, especially for those of a slightly older fashioned sense of humour. Writing this book was a "Good Thing". Read the book to understand the significance of that. Not advised for modern History students to crib from, for exams, though. You'll get "D minus", for Political Incorrectness from the trendy, lefty teching brigade.
