In complete honesty I got these for my Kindle simply because they were free, however, I'm finding them quite interesting. In my 76 years I've probably read 40 or 50 British/English histories. I always get something new. In this case the fact that they were written over 200 years ago clearly caused the author to see events in a very different light than most would today. For example, I just finished reading the section on King James I ... there was not a single word about the idea behind, the committee or anything else to do with the creation of the King James version of the bible; in fact the King James bible was literally not even mentioned.
