I should say how proud I am of myself, my origins, my existence as a White, Anglo-Saxon, English, British, Christian, Anglican middle-class male of a certain age… but I cannot.

This book is a journey into my past, Britain’s past, by someone—me—who is profoundly uncomfortable with it and with the present in which it has resulted. It is selective, quirky and ordinary, using information openly available to anyone via the internet. It reveals a story of the triumph of arrogant superiority and brutal expediency in defence of a morally indefensible regime of minority domination. Its realities have been fictionalised into a tale of institutionalised glory and civilised advance of human society that denies the frailty of the human psyche and the deadly savagery, self-seeking greed and single-minded pursuit of power that is my inheritance.

Richard found the courage to start writing at 66 years of age. For 13 years, he was increasingly forced into 'living in his head' by the progressive disabling of his body by Motor Neurone Disease. The upside of this was the time to indulge his love of British History and historical fiction. His very ordinary life as a UK citizen of entirely English stock has been characterised by his dissent from the established versions of the history he taught and the views and attitudes he has been expected to promote as a white middle-class male of a certain age.

    To say this book is a read of profound (British) historical evaluation and revelation, would perhaps be something of an understatement. It cuts to the non-ambiguous chase upon a factual premise of telling it as it needs to be told.
