Barbara Tuchman

telling it like it was

Have you seen our weblog or our monthly book review?

Tuchman never called herself a historian, but rather thought of herself as someone who wrote about history. She certainly wrote for the general reader rather than for academia, but her books are uniformly well-researched and readable. Her area of emphasis was the late 19th and early 20th centuries, though she went as far afield as the American Revolution (The First Salute) and the 14th century (A Distant Mirror). The Proud Tower concerns Europe at the end of 19th century. The Zimmerman Telegram describes how the United States entered World War I.
