Favorite History Books

Below are listed some of my favorite history books. A number of them are biographies, and I happen to think that biographies of important people say a great deal about the times in which they lived. I make no claim that these are objectie choices: some are listed because they are about people IO admire. Others are listed baecause I liked the writer's style, or agreed with some os his or her assessments of the periods they describe. All, I believe, are credible, competent historians or biographers, so I hope you enjoy them.
