World History Book Recommendations
I’ve been listening to Dan Carlin’s Supernova in the East Podcast and have been on a kick for some Imperial Japanese history/China Pre WW2. Any recommendations on books?

Also as an aside, I’ve always enjoyed the Crimean War and anything surrounding that. So any recommendations for that as well.

I agree that recommendations for ancient China and the Qin dynasty would be cool. If you're into manga, theres a wicked series called Kingdom that quite closely follows the narrative of the Qin dynasty. It's excellent.

I just read Carlin’s The End is Always Near... if you like the podcasts you’ll probably like this.

I just started a biography of Napoleon by Robert Andrews that’s pretty good.

Agreed on The End Is Always Near. Recently finished it and thought it was a great read. Carlin is da man.

Which Dust Bowl book?


The worst hard time - Timothy Egan

About 50 pages in and I can’t put it down... it starts out by talking about the cowboys and the settling of the land and the struggles to even get started

I highly recommend it .

re: World History Book Recommendations
To answer your OP..

If you’re into the time frame or liked the Kingdom of heaven movie.. it’s what peaked my interest in the topic but the Crusades- by Thomas asbridge was really good..

Solid fairly easy to read history of the crusades and told from a fair perspective of both Christianity and Islam by a British professor

I loved The Worst Hard Time so much that I structured several road trips to vacations out West such that I went through some of those areas and reused the book as a guide.
