Our books blog is an interactive forum where readers add their own recommendations and comment on our selection.
We are now giving our readers the opportunity to review some of the latest publications and to have their review published on the History Today Books blog.
Every month, we will offer a selection of books which we will send out to readers in return for their reviews.
To submit a review, please send an email to Kathryn Hadley (firstname.lastname@example.org) specifying your choice of book. We will then send you the book with a one-month deadline to send us your review.
Books will be sent on a first come first served basis.
Here is our August selection of books up for review.
