Ernle Bradford’s The Great Siege is one of E-Reads’ all-time bestselling nonfiction books. The take-no-prisoners war for Malta and control of the Mediterranean has gripped thousands of military history buffs ever since E-Reads put the book back in print. And now it will be joined by fifteen equally riveting works of popular history acquired from the Bradford estate.
From Thermopylae to Trafalgar, from Malta to Gibraltar, from the war in the Mediterranean to the Battle for the Atlantic, from Hannibal and Julius Caesar to St. Paul, Columbus, Drake and Henry the Navigator, Ernle Bradford has taken history’s greatest heroes and made them even grander and more vivid.
