Terry Deary – Barmy British Empire

 

This is the latest Horrible Histories book that I’ve read after picking up the box set for a bargain price at a car boot sale. I read a bunch of them when I was a kid, but I missed out on this one and so I’ve only just got round to reading it as an adult.

It’s a pretty interesting read though, and I particularly liked seeing the more negative side of the British Empire in action. I think too many people forget history and overlook some of the atrocities that the Brits carried out, so kudos to Deary, as a Brit, for going out of his way to include it. I even learned a few new things, which was a nice surprise.
