Years of Victory. 1802-1812.

£4.99

Product description

After the fall of France in 1940, Bryant's writing celebrated British patriotism. His English Saga, published at the end of that year, described England as "an island fortress … fighting a war of redemption, not only for Europe but for her own soul". Roberts says of his popular essays and books, "Bryant did a superb job in helping to stiffen the people's resolve by putting their sacrifices in historical context."His works during this period were well-received for their style and readability, although they also tended to be less well-researched, which has caused them to be questioned by younger historians. Several of these works, including English Saga (1940), The Years of Endurance 1793–1802 (1942), and Years of Victory, 1802–1812, drew notable criticism, particularly for his preoccupation with comparing Napoleon and Hitler. The shortcomings of these works, possibly combined with their unusual popularity, helped ensure that he never received the highest academic honours. (Thanks Wikipedia.)

This is a first of "Years of Victory." Some simple maps.

No jacket. Covers slightly grubby/faded. Some light marks to outer edges. All lightly browned.
