Lightning Down by Tom Clavin
A World War II Story of Survival // This book is like that of a thriller, but the stories of imprisoned and brutalized airmen are true and told in unforgettable detail, led by the distinctly American voice of Joe Moser, who prays every day to be reunited with his family. It is a can't-put-down inspiring saga of brave men confronting great evil and great odds against survival.
Travels with George by Nathaniel Philbrick
In Search of Washington and His Legacy // Written at a moment when America's foundational ideals--or claims to them--are under scrutiny, this book grapples bluntly and honestly with George Washington's legacy as a man of the people, a mythical figure of the early republic, a reluctant President, and a plantation owner who held people in slavery.
The Secret History of Food by Matt Siegel
Strange but True Stories About the Origins of Everything We Eat // Exploring cultural, scientific, sexual, and culinary substructures, this essential read for all foodies, at turns both funny and fascinating, looks at the little-known history surrounding food.
The Bright Ages by Matthew Gabriele and David M. Perry
A New History of Medieval Europe // A lively and magisterial popular history that refutes common misperceptions of the European Middle Ages, showing the beauty and communion that flourished alongside the dark brutality--a brilliant reflection of humanity itself.
