This is a book with 4 different topics, all related to the history of Great Britain. The topics are the following:

Topic 1: Horatio Nelson can be seen as one of the most courageous, strategic, valiant British generals in history. His tactics in the navy have led their empire to glorious victories in the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. During the wars against Napoleon, the Scandinavians, and in the West Indies, he was an exemplary leader, strategists, and combatant.

Topic 2: The Cathars were different from the mainstream Catholic church in the 13th century. They openly rebelled against some of the hypocritical behavior by priests and leaders, and they established their own deviant beliefs according to the best ability of their conscience.

Topic 3: From about 1858 to 1947, the British ruled over India. The raj carried out orders and came up with them. There was public mistrust and dissatisfaction about their regime, which led to protests, riots, and controversial events. India was a big part of the British Empire for a long time, until the country gained its independence. Other issues happened with the Bangladeshi and the Pakistani.

Topic 4: The Great Fire of London was a massive fire in the ominous year of 1666, which destroyed the homes of more than 80% of the city’s inhabitants, which was around 80,000 people back then. You will also learn about how the city was built up, how other competing countries saw the fire as a good thing, and how Christopher Wren helped rebuild churches and houses when it was all over. Something else was even more disturbing at this time: The Great Plague of London, a horrible scourge which is believed to have killed more than 100,000 people, struck with ills from rats and a lack of hygiene, around the same time.
