Historical books on the last 200 years-can we make a list?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find books that are about history or even historical fiction that have the last 200-300 years as the backdrop? Without researching too much :001_smile:, I will start;


To Kill a Mockingbird

Treasure Island

Pride & Prejudice

Oliver Twist


I am trying to create a reading list that gives a feel for the history of the time, but would be interested in any books you consider pertinent to the era.

Well you've got some historical literature so I will suggest some more as well as some non-fiction history.


Red Badge of Courage

Huckleberry Finn

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Up From Slavery (and/or Souls of Black Folk)

Battle Cry of Freedom

King Leopold's Ghost

All Quiet on the Western Front

The Grapes of Wrath

Cry the Beloved Country

The Great Gatsby

Guns of August

10 Days the Shook the World

Citizen Soldiers

I Have a Dream and Letters from Birmingham Jail

Fallen Angels


There are lots more... but this is a start.
