The history of the Second World War. Volume 1, The gathering storm Winston Churchill
It was a simple policy to keep Germany disarmed after the struggle of the First World War and the victors adequately armed in vigilance, but errors were soon made. In this first volume it is all too easy to see and understand how the immense tragedy of the Second World War could have been avoided, how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous.
The history of the Second World War. Volume 2, Their finest hour Winston Churchill
In this short and intense period of the war Churchill's sense of history is profound. “If the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say this was its finest hour”. In this second volume Britain stands alone in combat against the mortal threat posed to civilisation, liberal democracy and human decency. There were many hardships and disasters to come but Churchill could rightly proclaim “Alone but up-bourne by every generous heart beat of mankind we had defied the tyrant in the height of his triumph.”
The history of the Second World War. Volume 3, The grand alliance Winston Churchill
1941 was to prove strategically decisive; with Hitler's campaign in the Balkans vital time was lost to the Wehrmacht for an attack on its former ally Russia. When the 150 divisions hurled themselves forward in June many knew that the long Russian winter would grind the enemy to a standstill. In December the third member of 'The Grand Alliance' stepped from the background with the infamous attack of Pearl Harbor. Now Churchill knew in his heart that ultimate victory surely lay with Britain, The United States and Russia but the continuing pain, sacrifice and toll of blood and machine were still to be borne.
The history of the Second World War. Volume 4, The hinge of fate Winston Churchill
Although The Grand Alliance was now in place Churchill knew that it would take precious time before it would be able to effectively engage and subdue the enemy. Disaster was upon him almost at once. With the entrance of Japan into the global conflict our Far East possessions were under immediate threat. With the invasion by Allied forces of French North Africa the deserts were free of the enemy by May. Now Stalin could be relieved with the opening of a second front in Europe with the invasion of the soft belly of Italy. In early 1943, the Allies were moving inexorably towards victory. Churchill's conviction was borne out. The Hinge of Fate was now decided.
The history of the Second World War. Volume 5, Closing the ring Winston Churchill
As the Allies prepared for the Normandy invasion many war councils were held. At Teheran, the first of the Big Three conferences, decisive steps were taken to ensure this. Discussion was opened as to what shape and form the world would take after the defeat of the enemy. In Britain, Churchill prepared his resources for Operation Overlord and the invasion that would at last lift the tyranny and foul shadow of Hitler from Europe. Five years of titanic struggle had now succeeded in 'Closing The Ring'.

Miss Fiona's fancy M. C. Beaton
The Misses Penelope Yarwood, Euphemia Perkins, and Letitia Helmsdale all smugly informed her that the Marquess of Cleveden was at once the most eligible and the most elusive catch in the London marriage mart, and a newcomer like Fiona didn't stand a ghost of a chance of having him look at her twice.

At home : a short history of private life Bill Bryson
Bill Bryson was struck one day by the thought that we devote a lot more time to studying the battles and wars of history than to considering what history really consists of: centuries of people quietly going about their daily business - eating, sleeping and merely endeavouring to get more comfortable. And that most of the key discoveries for humankind can be found in the very fabric of the houses in which we live.

Down under Bill Bryson
Bill Bryson had imagined Australia as a kind of southern California. What greeted him was something rather different: Australia is the world's sixth largest country and the only island that is also a continent.

After vigorous exercise on the Appalachian Trail comes this edited collection of Bryson's most splenetic comic pieces culled from his humourous regular column in the Mail on Sunday.
Notes from a small island Bill Bryson
After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson took the decision to move back to the States for a few years. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain. His aim was to take stock of the nation's public face and private parts (as it were), and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite, a military hero whose dying wish was to be kissed by a fellow named Hardy, place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey and Shellow Bowells, people who said 'Mustn't grumble', and Gardeners' Question Time.
A short history of nearly everything Bill Bryson
