There are books specifically for scale modellers and there are a lot of history books out there that cover the periods of interest to scale modellers. I mean, really a lot! These are simply some that I have read and what I think about them.

Personally, I don’t especially care for history books that are entirely focused on the nuts and bolts of hard-ware or simply provide a blow-by blow account of actions, battles or campaigns. I enjoy an engaging narrative that gives a sense of place and time and provides an insight into how the people involved actually felt.

There are good narrative history books. Then there are great narrative history books…
