British history is rich in enthralling stories: pivotal moments that changed the future of the country; moments of drama, suspense, intrigue. Dive right into the heart of the action with the Great Tales series. 'During the whole time that she had been on the scaffold, she had been nervously looking round towards the place where the executioner stood leaning on his heavy sword. Now she knelt down, and one of her attendants bound a handkerchief round her eyes. After this the ladies also knelt down, silently praying, while she repeated the words: "Oh God, have pity on my soul." The executioner stepped quickly forward and took his aim.' From arrest to execution, Friedmann narrates the tragic fall of Anne Boleyn from the greatest heights a woman could reach. She was the victim of King Henry VIII, the man who had once loved her, and who had altered the course of the Tudor age and his country's history forever in order to have her. Perfect for lovers of narrative history, the Great Tales series documents the great, defining and tragic moments of British history.
