Over many centuries, England has been the target for ambitious and opportunistic leaders and conquerors coveting her rolling green hills, fertile soils and hidden riches.


In the early twentieth century, Edward Foord and Gordon Home set out to create a definitive history on the invasions, incursions and intrusions of those avaricious occupiers, something that had not previously been attempted.


From the great campaign in which the Roman general Paulinus crushed the British struggle for independence under Boudicca to the Viking ravages and Napoleon’s ‘design’, the authors attempt to throw new light on some of the most famous conquests and victories on British soil.
