Have you ever wanted to go back in time and be present at an important occasion in history? “What historical period or incident would you like to have witnessed – and why?“ was the question Byron Hollinshead, president of American Historical Publications put to a number of historians.
These questions are answered in two collections of readable essays describing and commenting on historical events. The first volume covers American history from the Cahokian period, AD 1030 to Lyndon Johnson’s confrontation with George Wallace. The second volume explores topics in European history from the death of Alexander the Great to the German surrender to Montgomery at Luneburg Heath, 1945.
If you’re interested in reading more, each essay has a list of suggestions for further reading.
