Can anyone recommend any books that covers the land war? And Land League?
You just got there before me Sand.
Rubicon is absolutely brilliant. It is just so exciting from start to finish. There really was some amazing figures in ancient Rome.
"Ten dead men" by David Beresford is without a doubt the best book on the 1981 hunget strike, a must read.
Yes excellent, but I think it's actually "Ten men dead" as far as I can remember.
If you like history and stories about ordinary people, there is a brilliant book called "The Last of The Name" by Charles McGlinchey. He lived in Donegal around the end of the 1800s/start of the 1900s, and his stories were taken down and published by a local schoolteacher (whose name escapes me now - he was Kavanagh anyway). It is a real insight into the life of ordinary Irish people during the late 1800s - their traditions and customs and the way of life in rural Ireland.
I have recently bought Mein Kampf by Hitler
Has anyone else here read it? I am only 3 chapters into it, but i think this is a fascinating book and am looking forward to reading the rest of it. It is an interesting insight into his mind and way of thinking.

Be very careful when reading through these. I find a lot of the ideas while striving to be original are slightly far fetched. Still good to read though.
