Gunpowder, treason and plot: The gruesome story of Guy Fawkes
Title: Gunpowder, treason and plot: The gruesome story of Guy Fawkes
Publisher: Day One
The year is 1605 and England is in crisis as terrorists plot to blow up the King, the Royal Family and Parliament in one gigantic explosion in Westminster! If the plot had succeeded England, Europe and the subsequent history of the world would have been very different - there would have been no King James Bible, no Pilgrim Fathers, and the dominant language of the world would probably have become Spanish. On the 400th anniversary of the plot, read how powerful nations and famous figures of history were caught up in the unfolding drama.
- Features published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot.
- Illustrated throughout with pictures and diagrams.
- Fascinating story, not often told at the popular level such as this.
- Author has a thorough knowledge of the subject and communicates it with enthusiasm and application.
- Book is unique in its class
