History is a fascinating topic whether it be the history of a country, the history of warfare or the history of an individual. Although we have promoted historical books over the years in our real world and biography genres we felt it was time these titles got their own special spot on the site and so we bring you a dedicated History genre.

 

To mark the centenary of the outbreak of WW1 in 1914, we have created a special section of books, fiction and non-fiction, new titles and old ones, to reflect the tragedy of the First World War. Click here to find out more.


Take David Kynaston’s Family Britain, unputdownable narrative history that leaves you impatient for the next instalment or Mary Beard’s Pompeii, an enthralling account of this rediscovered city. There’s humour in Charlie Connolly’s And Did Those Feet and in Matthew Engel’s Eleven Minutes Late as they investigate history through road and rail respectively. And we have tragedy – Xinran’s Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother is guaranteed to touch any heart.  There’s tragedy too in Wendy Moore’s Wedlock featuring a villain so evil it’s hard to believe this in non-fiction we’re reading but this is one story that did turn into fiction, the case outlined in Wendy Moore’s book provided the inspiration for William Thackeray’s novel Barry Lyndon.

I would also especially recommend Roger Hutchinson’s family history, Walking to America. By pulling on one of history’s countless threads he uncovers a wealth of detail, of human love and loss that without his brilliant book would be lost to us all. It’s a worthy successor to his inspirational Calum’s Road which I’ve also recommended.
