A Short History of England
by G. K. Chesterton
Publisher: Chatto and Windus 1917
Number of pages: 160
This volume covers quickly, yet completely, the history of England from early Roman times to the time of the Great War, World War I. Gilbert Keith Chesterton is certainly one of the most entertaining, and important, authors in the English language. This book can really be seen as a layman's philosophical representation of the great arc of English history.

This work is intended to appeal to the general reader who finds less than he requires in the books written expressly for the use of schools. It ought to be of service to advanced pupils and their teachers, as well as to university and other students.
by Charles Dickens - John W. Lovell Co.
The book takes its reader on a fascinating journey, from Ancient England and the Romans to Victoria's reign and Dickens' own lifetime. Full of sensational plots, high adventure and terrible tragedy, it will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good story.

I have endeavoured in the space at my disposal to show how the British Army has grown up. I have tried merely to tell a 'story', and therefore omitted much that might have been said regarding the noble work the Queen's Army has done.
