A sort of Totally Biased History of England, this takes us through all the times when Britain and France have been at war - or at least glowering at each other across what we Brits provocatively call The English Channel. Starting with the bloody battles of the Norman Conquest and going right up to the more civilised but no less conflictual present, when a state visit by the French President becomes a series of hilarious historical insults, '1000 Years of Annoying the French' is a light-hearted - but impeccably researched - account of all those conflicts and their protagonists. From the bestselling author of 'A Year in the Merde'.
