Tales of Ordinary Folk and Monarchs

We have a fascination with learning about the past and there are many textbooks to satisfy this need. History books pull together the facts of events at the time they occurred and can draw us into that time. Not only learning about the events but also providing some very interesting stories. Most of us will have studied some historical texts at school but likely never picked up a book since.

The ebooks in this category cover a huge range of topics and the theme that ties them together is that they tell factual accounts of the time they cover. We can’t know everything about the past as the further back we go there are fewer records but authors try to pull together the evidence that is available and may make some assumptions to fill in gaps. Some books will provide discussion and opinion from the author.

The obooko collection of world history books contains some diverse topics. A popular area of study and interest reading is the kings and queens of England. A favourite King to study with countless books and other media portraying him is Henry the Eight. Well known for his six wives and his habit of executing them. He also threw the catholic church out of England and changed the course of history. Maybe not the friendliest of kings but it makes a good read!

Moving away from the old monarchs of England, a popular topic of world history books is the story of war. Sometimes stories are directly about the military battles but other times we get the chronicles of people and their personal stories of survival with the backdrop of war. On obooko, Shattered Crystals tells the tale of a Jewish family escaping Nazi Germany and, despite the massive odds against them, surviving the war.

Whatever your interest in the subject there is something for you. Even if you haven’t read a history text book since school, you will find many interesting stories based on real facts.
