In A Bash with The British Empire, David Harper takes a humorous look at the three hundred plus years that the British Empire ruled over much of the world.
The book covers many subjects: from fashion and the various forms of make-up used; bathing in strange baths; inventions (the toothbrush, bicycle, postage stamps, food preservation, the telegraph line, and more); amazing engineering feats in the form of bridges, the underground and cathedrals; sport; employment; democracy (the suffragettes) - and the list goes on!
In reading this wonderful book you get to learn all sorts of facts. You will be able to impress everyone you know with your new-found knowledge!
You might be interested in learning the origins of football, rugby, snooker - and the Christmas Cracker!
There is even a very funny account on how a Maharajah gets revenge on that great British institution, Rolls-Royce!
