9780091926489: Hope & Glory: The Days That Made Britain

These were the days that made us, and these are the day trips to find them. Should we do a flask? And are you sure you’ll be warm enough in that coat? In Hope and Glory Stuart Maconie goes in search of the places, people, and events that have shaped modern Britain. Starting with the death of Queen Victoria, to the Battle of the Somme and the General Strike, and on to the docking of the Empire Windrush and Bobby Moore raising the Jules Rimet trophy, he chooses a defining moment in the nation’s story from each decade of the last century and explores its legacy today. Some were glorious days, some were tragic, or even shameful, but each has played its part in making the British who they are as a nation. From pop stars to politicians, Suffragettes to punks, this is a journey around Britain in search of national identity.
