|Contacting Anthony Beevor||1||May 10, 2016|
Anthony Beevor has been praised for transforming a genre and inspiring a generation. His history of the battle of Stalingrad, not only catapulted him to international fame in 1998, it took military history into the bestseller lists.
I have to confess I'm always a bit suspicious of other people's summer reading lists - I'm convinced they make them up just to look clever. I mean, Anthony Beevor's Stalingrad? On summer hols? So, naturally, I toyed with the idea of presenting a list that made me look very intellectual (Finnegans Wake etc), then decided to just be honest!
