"History is about stories. I find them fascinating but many books can be very dry, so I try to focus on the story, the people and the challenges.These are written as introductions. Entire books could be (and have been) written on these topics, so if one of my essays piques your interest, there are many more resources out there to tell the whole story with far more detail."
