King John: Treachery Tyranny And The Road To The Magna Carta


Category: 20th Century 1914 To 1945 49
Description: The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta made headlines across the world in 2015 and this biography provides a compelling portrait of King John, the supposed tyrant leader who issued - and consequently rejected - the famous document that bound him and his successors to better behaviour. Extensively researched and written by Marc Morris, author of A Great and Terrible King and The Norman Conquest, the book examines whether King John was the familiar figure we all know from Robin Hood - a monarch who was greedy, cowardly, despicable and cruel. Throughout the book, the historian draws on contemporary chronicles and the king's own letters to show what John was really like. He argues he was dynamic, inventive and relentless, but also a very flawed individual whose rise to power involved treachery, rebellion and murder. The book also looks at the invasions by Wales, Scotland and Ireland that occurred under John's reign and the civil war and foreign invasion that brought upon his downfall.

Category: 20th Century 1914 To 1945 49
Description: We are honoured to announce the re-release of the first ever Pitkin title, published by Mr Pitkin in 1947 to celebrate the magical wedding day of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947. It was a day of colourful pageantry and heartfelt rejoicing for the British people in the grey aftermath of war and rationing. The young couple took with them down the aisle the hopes and aspirations of the whole nation. Now, 70 years on, Pitkin has great pleasure in publishing this souvenir facsimile edition to celebrate the royal couple's platinum wedding anniversary. For most of the UK population, Queen Elizabeth II is the only monarch we have known and the world has watched her flourish into not only a loving wife and mother, but the longest reigning living monarch in history. Prince Philip has been her `strength and stay' for the duration of her reign and, in her own words, we `owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim.' Their long and happy marriage has been one of the deepest in love and affection, echoing the Archbishop's blessing on 20 November 1947: ` May God's unfailing love always surround and protect you. May He, day by day, now and always, give you joy in all your married life, every blessing, peace and happiness.'

Category: 20th Century 1914 To 1945 49
Description: Katherine Howard was Henry VIII's Fifth Queen and this biography provides an in-depth look at her life right up until her beheading in 1542 for crimes of adultery and treason - one of the biggest scandals of the Tudor era. Having first come to court as a young girl of 14 years old, Katherine's fate was sealed from an early age. This book looks beyond the traditional story of her sexual exploits before she married the king and instead reveals a life blighted by child abuse, family ambition, religious conflict and political and sexual intrigue. Revealing Katherine as a bright and intelligent woman who tried to be a good wife to Henry, the book reveals how she was really no more than a child in a man's world - and the tragic victim of those who held positions of authority over her.

Description: Written by former para and colonel Robert J. Kershaw, 24 Hrs at the Somme provides a definitive account of the battle that changed history and left a huge emotional impact on the British public. It's now 100 years since the battle but it still remains one of the most important and devastating moments in military history with 57,470 men ending up dead, missing or wounded. In this detailed and informative book, Kershaw uses the voices of British and German soldiers who lived through the awful day to reveal exactly what happened. Juxtaposing the view of the British trenches with that from the German parapet, the book draws on eyewitness accounts, memories and letters to expose the true horror of 1 July, 1916. Amongst the horrifying accounts of warfare there are also poignant stories of humanity, comradeship and patriotic spirit.

The Lancaster Roman Cavalry Stone


Category: 20th Century 1914 To 1945 49
Description: The County of Lancashire - and the City of Lancaster in particular - have a richer archaeological heritage than is often appreciated. This was most dramatically demonstrated in November 2005 with the discovery of a massive stone bearing the image of a triumphant horseman and his fallen foe. This was without doubt one of the most significant finds of recent years. But who was the horseman, could the many fragments ever be satisfactorily be reassembled, and what did this stunning object mean for our history? To hope to answer these questions, and to put this artefact where it might be enjoyed by Lancastrians and visitors alike, would take the co-operative efforts of numerous museums, four universities, and the enthusiastic support of local people. This richly illustrated volume represents a first attempt - by archaeologists, classical historians, conservators and curators - to tell the stone's story, and in doing so to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding Insus, son of Vodullus.

Is King Arthur really buried with Guinevere in the Abbey grounds?

Rich and Artful THE LANCET. Genuinely mind-expanding FORTEAN TIMES. Excellent NEW SCIENTIST. Stunning NEW YORK TIMES. Small books, big ideas.
