Treasures Of British History
From the Magna Carta to Hitler's letter to Chamberlain agreeing never to go to war, these 50 documents capture some of the most significant moments in English history. Peter and Dan Snow—celebrated historians with a wealth of experience in politics, military history, and current affairs—explore the implications and impact of these treasures, which they personally chose. The treasures include Churchill's Finest Hour speech following the Fall of France, a ticket stub to the Beatles' first concert, and the signatories of the Good Friday Agreement, and they come from The National Archives, the British Museum, the British Library, and the National Records of Scotland. This beautifully designed book is a must-have for all history enthusiasts.
