Review of The Birth of Britain by Winston Churchill

The Birth of Britain: A History of the English Speaking Peoples, Volume I (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) - Winston Churchill, Michael Frassetto

I was not sure what to expect with this, but I really enjoyed this book.  Churchill writes descriptively, clearly, and with unique personality.  The historical stories were well told, and he took a time period that could be a bit dry (at least for me) and made it interesting.  There were a few times when there were a few too many names for me to follow - medieval England is not a strong area in terms of my history knowledge - but it helped me learn a great deal.  Highly recommended and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
