New history books in April 2022

by Anthony Webb, 1 May 2022

The April 2022 new history books round up!

A bit of a range on offer, from ancient to very modern and a decent geographical spread.

I'm going to try to find the time to read:

  • Mutinous Women: How French Convicts Became Founding Mothers of the Gulf Coast, whose title says it all really. It sounds like a fascinating and in parts very harrowing story.
  • Also Persians: The Age of The Great Kings written from the Persian's point of view by a history professor who presumably knows his stuff.
  • And finally The Empress and the English Doctor: How Catherine the Great defied a deadly virus which looks like an intriguing tale even it has clearly commandeered the COVID bandwagon.

Hover over the book and click the little flags for links to Amazon UK and US book pages.
