The English have for centuries been a puzzle to the people of other countries', explains this guide produced for overseas forces stationed in England during the Second World War. The English and Their Country attempts to solve this puzzle, providing an account of English characteristics for confused guests. Including everything from a description of England's geography and climate, to an explanation of the English class system and the Englishman's 'reserved', 'sensitive' and 'shy' behaviour, this book is a lighthearted and amusing take on English life and customs.
