There’s so much more to learn than just what was in your high school textbooks (and if you’re anything like us, you’ve probably forgotten most of that anyway). There’s a book out there exploring just about everything that’s happened in history. From the Crusades to the World Wars, and everything before and after, there’s a history book for that.
History books also go beyond wars—there are history books on just about whatever you’re interested in! From biographies on U.S. presidents to what happened on the Titanic, from the history of world religions to how long we’ve been burning books, there’s a book for you.
