About the Author

Robert Tombs is Professor of History at Cambridge University. His acclaimed book That Sweet Enemy: The French and the British from the Sun King to the Present was published in 2006. He is one of the leading scholars of Anglo-French relations.


A work of supreme intelligence ... No history published this year has been of such resounding importance to contemporary debates. Tombs, who is both fearless and non-partisan, deserves to be rewarded with a life peerage for this book -- Richard Davenport-Hines * Observer *
Learned, pithy and punchy, with a laudable sense of narrative sweep and a bracing willingness to offer bold judgments, [Tombs's] survey is a tremendous achievement, and deserves to become the standard history for years to come -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times *
Packed with telling detail and told with gentle, sardonic wit ... [a] vast and delightful book -- Ben Macintyre * The Times *
