    • The Battle of Edge Hill of 22 October 1642 was the first great engagement of the English Civil War. It was fought in the open fields between the villages of Radway and Kineton in Warwickshire. At the end of the day, although neither side at Edgehill could claim a decisive victory, the result was that Charles "won" in so far as the road to London was now open to him. However, Charles did not take advantage of his opportunity. His…

It's a super fast read. Several great unpublished colored photos with incredible details are added, for this superb and…

    • If you're a history nerd, you will love this book. It's a firsthand account of the battle at Gettysburg from the perspective of a young 14-years-old resident who tried to flee the inevitable battle by going to a neighbor's home on the outskirts of town (the Jacob Weikert farm). Instead she ended up square and center of it for the three days, helping care for the wounded in that farmhouse basement. Fascinating. Horrific. Scandalous. It's a super fast read. Bought…

    • A splendid book this "Salus Vienna Tua", from the original work of British historian Henry Elliot Malden that provides a detailed account of the intricate machinations between the Habsburgs and the Ottomans. Malden’s description of the siege itself is masterly and always a fresh reading. Very clear are the details of the negotiations among the Christian princes and charting the march of the various armies. He seems to know every inch of ground, every earthwork and fortification around the Imperial…

    • Fanny was a quiet girl, but also a writer of considerable talent. Maligned by some of her contemporaries because she didn’t fit in with the Victorian image of what a ‘lady’ should be, she did things her way and wrote about them in a vivid, lively way, bringing the Crimean War to gut-wrenching life in a way no history book can. She was there for the duration, saw the Charge of the Light Brigade, walked through the ruins of Sebastopol…
