The March of History Complete 4 Volumes by Barbara W Tuchman

Tuchman favoured a literary approach to the writing of history, providing eloquent explanatory narratives rather than concentration upon discovery and publication of fresh archival sources. In the words of one biographer, Tuchman was “not a historian’s historian; she was a layperson’s historian who made the past interesting to millions of readers. Tuchman’s storytelling prowess was rewarded in 1963 when she received the Pulitzer Prize for her book The Guns of August, dealing with the behind-the-scenes political machinations which led to the eruption of World War I in the summer of 1914. This is the complete four volume collection in two slipcases as below;
