The History Buff Package

They say that ‘those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it’. For those who love to find out how we got to where we are, we have a great selection of fiction and non-fiction:

Burke & Hare by Owen Dudley Edwards

Here is the unvarnished, human story behind the infamous Burke and Hare murders. We delve into their past, their personalities and the circumstances that made them resort to murder as a money-making scheme.It’s a tale of desperation and greed, of outsiders, ambition, corruption and betrayal. And it’s all true!

Bannockburn by Alistair Moffat

Best-selling author Alistair Moffat offers fresh insights into one of the most famous battles in history. A very human picture of Bannockburn that recreates the experience not only of the leaders – Edward II and Robert the Bruce – but the ordinary men who fought to the death on both sides.

Isn't All this Bloody edited by Trevor Royle

In this book, acclaimed military historian Trevor Royle introduces a huge range of literary material – including poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, letters and articles – by Scottish writers. The result is a fascinating picture which shows how war affected not only those who fought at the front, but also those at home, and how it led to profound changes – not least in the forging of the Scottish literary Renaissance and the rise of nationalism.
