Publisher's Description

A unique and accessible history of England from one of the country’s preeminent thinkers

Published in 1917, A Short History of England is a "popular book of history" told through the layman’s eyes. G. K. Chesterton takes the reader on brisk, casual strolls through the annals of Anglo-Saxon history by discussing key topics and periods, including "The Defeat of the Barbarians," "The Problem of the Plantagenets," and "Nationality and the French Wars," in clear and insightful prose.
 
A fascinating collection of short pieces that bring the past to stimulating life, A Short History of England is a testament to the unique qualities that, according to George Bernard Shaw, made Chesterton "at once the most concise and the fullest historian this distressful country has yet found."
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Author Bio

G. K. Chesterton (1874–1936) was a prolific English journalist and author best known for his mystery series featuring the priest-detective Father Brown and for the metaphysical thriller The Man Who Was Thursday. Baptized into the Church of England, Chesterton underwent a crisis of faith as a young man and became fascinated with the occult. He eventually converted to Roman Catholicism and published some of Christianity’s most influential apologetics, including Heretics and Orthodoxy.
