    Reading this book was an absolutely horrible experience.Not only is this historian doing history in an embarrassingly amateurish way, but his entire take on Britain s colonial endeavours is painfully shallow and so old fashioned as to be positively distasteful.He seems to be aware o

    I was inclined to give this book only 1 star, as the author s prose and writing transitions are weak and his analysis fairly shallow Laycock has some difficulty seeing the forest of British imperialism for the trees of military history But some of the trees are fascinating Laycock includes h

    When I saw the title of this book I thought it d be about the reasons for invading various countries and the consequences of the invasions Well, I was wrong It s about random people that invaded random countries as the countries are listed alphabetically, which sounds ridiculous, but it is just as we

    Intended as an overview or introduction, and as such it works very well The entries are brief, and there is not a lot of detail, but the author manages to pack quite a bit in there and certainly enough to spark the reader s interest enough to pursue the topic in depth Plus, he writes in a humorous, conversational style that is fun to read.

    I m not exactly sure why this book has such a low rating It s not supposed to be comprehensive it s a bathroom reader and it does that job very well There are some minor mistakes which should have been fixed in editing and the maps in the back of the book are outdated but overall this was a solid overview of an interesting subject written by a rather ch

    I had high hopes when I picked this up but failed to note that it s simply an alphabetical list of countries With no themes or grouping, it is a mess of sequential continent hopping that was entertaining in places but ultimately tiring.
