History Books for Christmas

History Books

Christmas at Foyles

2018 has seen a wealth of superb history books from some of the most learned and, importantly, readable of historians. Max Hastings’s Vietnam is a masterful and comprehensive account of that devastating war, Ben MacIntyre’s The Spy and the Traitor is a compelling account of an extraordinary Cold War story, and Kassia St Clair follows up The Secret Lives of Colour with another fascinating and unusual slice of history in The Golden Thread, a journey through time in fabrics. Browse more of our recommended titles below, including our selection of books signed by the author for an extra-special Christmas gift.
