18th Century and Earlier, Books

Pretty much why I love “everyday” history.

“Well now, history is not just the tale of the victors,” he said, “It’s the tale of the privileged. The men in the mud of the battlefield didn’t leave much of a story behind, and the stories they did tell were mostly ignored or forgotten.”

Strangely enough, I never really read historical fiction. This book might just convert me, however.
