New history books in March 2022

by Anthony Webb, 1 April 2022

Here are they are - the latest history books available to buy.

A definite European bias this month with medieval and early modern periods featuring strongly...

My personal highlights:

  • I like the look of The Lion House: The Coming of A King, about Suleyman the Magnificent the Ottoman Sultan, and will be adding that to my list.
  • Also: The Restless Republic: Britain without a Crown covering ordinary and celebrity lives during Britain's 10 years without a king from 1649.
  • I will also mention Legacy of Violence: A History of the British Empire which I think is an important book to be aware of... and it gets a front cover plug from my old history tutor too.
