Irresistible Books for History Buffs
Dan Jones is the author of The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England and The Wars of the Roses: The Fall of the Plantagenets and the Rise of the Tudors. His latest book, The Templars: The Rise and Spectacular Fall of God's Holy Warriors, brings the dramatic history of knights, warriors, bankers, priests, and heretics to life.
Some readers are stuck in the past. Help them feed their obsession with fascinating recommendations from Jones that explore true tales of monarchs and explorers, conquests and politics.
"Life is boundlessly complex, but good history is simple," Jones says. "These eight books, all published in the last decade, cover more than two thousand years of human endeavor, ranging from the rise of the Roman Republic to the election of Donald Trump. What they share is masterful, vivid storytelling by authors totally in command of their material."
