There is no other history book that would be treason against the crown and the empire

After all we did for you ;) I'm sure most countries gloss over their own dodgy pasts in books aimed at kids. They are quite clear about it in books aimed at adults. Britain had a collonial empire the same as the Spanish, Dutch and many other European countries and I don't know how well they cover their own dark histories, and it's not like only theyy have dark histories. The legacy of bitterness about it comes from the fact that Britain was better at doing the bad thing that everyone else was doing and for a while that small island dominated the world. You can slam them for it (I'd say me but I wasn't around at the time) but they were out there acheiving their goals even if those goals were retrospectively "bad".
