Reviews

The Spectator

John De Falbe

It could be argued that The Companion to British History is among the most remarkable books ever written. It is the word ‘written’ which is important, for the CBH is not merely edited or compiled by Charles Arnold-Baker. While the research, which is mind-boggling, is his own, the book is actually written by him. There is a consistent stylistic excellence to its pages; it is recognisably the work of a single mind. One could almost approach it as an astounding novel, along the lines of Pavic’s Dictionary of the Khazars, or even Bolaño’s 2666.
