How brave. How self interested. How loyal. How sad. How topical for 2020 elections. A must listen / read for everyone interested in the American politics. This mafia gangland story is a testimony that the political scene in the so called fee world must be changed. Surely we are better than this! The world deserves better than this. We owe it to the future of democracy that we are better... and NOW!

Great listening

I appreciate the information within this book but the constant reviewing of past events makes it tedious listening. The role of the USA is very prominent and at times over powering the simple story of a poor and tragic nation in its struggle for democracy. If condensed to just 12 hours listening would be dynamic as well as informative.

Fabulous research and theory. Ian Mortimer demonstrates that he knows and loves researching past kings, their life, times and peer groups. A wonderful insight into history placing cause with affects, actions with consequences. I have enjoyed every minute of this audio. Well paced, easy to listen to, totally enjoyable. Appendix additions are insightful.... intriguing the percentage of the English population that maybe related to King Edward 3rd.

This book is fabulous and I consider Judith Boyd has done justice to its feel, facts and empathy with Katherine Swynford. With young women of 2019 Katherine proves a great strong woman of history. She proved she was financially astute, a keen and capable manager of her work place and world. Great read!

Having the story of history written and narrated by the same person adds so much to the insight and understanding of this work. Dan Jones loves his research and imparts that love on to his audience. An exciting, in depth, informative experience. If you love history, especially the history of England you will love this work. Clearly read at a good pace with obvious research skills making it a great work! Well worth the money and the listening.

How wonderful to listen to the story of a extra ordinary woman and leader. I bemoan the loss of her leadership so desperately needed in our modern age. I’m sure she would have found many solutions with ease and grace ...even without the legislature ability to remove heads!
