The "Sun" PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The An irreverent look at 2,000 years of history through the eyes of Britain's biggest-selling newspaper The tabloid Sun came into existence only on November 17 1969 -- which means no less than 14.5 billion years of the Earth's history went unrecorded in its pages. Hold Ye Front Page now rights that wrong -- at least in part. It covers 2,000 years of history as though the paper were reporting on the momentuous events of the last two millennia the day after each happened. 50 key events get the full Sun front-page treatment. The birth of Christ (A Star is Born), the Roman Invasion (Send 'Em Rome), the Norman Invasion (Stormin' Normans), Henry VIII (The Joy of Six), The American Revolution (Yanked Apart) , the first airplane (All Wright on the Night), the rise of Hitler (Nazi Piece of Work) and many more. This is history as you have never seen it before. Accompanying tables, charts and text provide the real historical background, however. There's a serious purpose here, too. And there's a full index to help you navigate round the book more easily. Stuffed with pictures, humour, irreverence and just plain, umistakeable Sun-style magic (how about Jeremy Clarkson's Woad Test of the Magna Cart Deluxe?), this is the perfect accompaniment to the Millennium!
