Resumen del libro

The history of Britain has been shaped by those who have invaded this small isle: the Romans, Vikings and Norman Conquest all moulded British society and culture. Surprinsingly, the last time mainland Britain was ever invaded was not Duke William's victory at Hastings in 1606 or even the Bloodless Revolution of 1688. It was, in fact, in February 1797 when 1,400 drunken and out-of-control French soldiers from the Legion Noire landed on the north coast of Pembrokeshire near Fishguard. With Britain's Last Invasion dive into the Battle of Fishguard, a military invasion of Great Britain by Revolutionary France.
