History

A few months ago, I started the Weekend Walkthrough, which looks at books based on a point in history (either fiction or non-fiction). Everything I've referred to should be included in the links below. If there's something not in the list that you want to know more about, let me know!

The Early Modern period
The situation in 1650
Infanticide
Hanging
Safety coffins

World War I
How it all started
Entry requirements
Crime and punishment - desertion, court martials, etc.
Warfare
Propaganda
Censorship
Dulce et Decorum Est, by Wilfred Owen

Post-war
Portsmouth mudlarks
Old English money (shillings, etc.)
