That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history. Aldous Huxley

 

Do you read history to learn from it, to understand your own world better, to see a world you’ve never known?

 Wikipedia lists 44 biographies of Adolph Hitler (and that doesn’t include Springtime for Hitler).  One bookseller lists 34 titles about Winston Churchill.  This is just a tiny peek at what falls into the history category.  So how do you choose what you want to read?

 Are you especially interested in a particular time period?  Is there a location that you find fascinating?  Is it the people who fashion history that draw your attention?

 Share your choices – curious people want to know.
