Here is the dramatic story of Great Britain in the sixteen turning points that over the centuries shaped the country's destiny: from the Magna Carta, the crude bill of rights that became the "irrepealable fundamental statue" of England law, to the Hundred Years War, which saw the power and prestige of France repeatedly humbled and the European standing of England greatly enhanced; from victories in West Africa, the West Indies, the North Atlantic, the battlefields of Europe and India, and the Plains of Abraham outside Quebec to the establishment of an empire on which the sun never set; from the slightly more than 1,000 Royal Air Force pilots - one-third of whom were killed - who saved Great Britain from invasion by Nazi Germany to the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, which marked the beginning of the end of World War II.
