From Tro to Vietnam

Boek cover Bible and Sword van Barbara W. Tuchman (Paperback)
England and Palestine from the Bronze Age to Balfour
From Barbara W. Tuchman, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Guns of August, comes history through a wide-angle lens: a fascinating chronicle of Britain's long relationship with Palestine and the Middle East, from the ancient world to the twentieth century.

With the lucidity and vividness that characterize all her work, Barbara W. Tuchman follows these twin spiritual and imperial...

Boek cover A Distant Mirror van Barbara W. Tuchman (Paperback)
The Calamitous 14th Century
The fourteenth century was a time of fabled crusades and chivalry, glittering cathedrals and grand castles. It was also a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague.
