Re: Historical fiction

Shogun is amazing. I read almost all his books. The one with Dirk Struan is great too. Can't remember the title.

Conn Iggulden's books on Caesar and Genghis are also good

Re: Historical fiction

The Quiet American by Graham Greene nailed the American disaster in Vietnam -- in 1954!

Gore Vidal's America series is wonderful.

Re: Historical fiction

How has Robert Graves not been mentioned in this thread? I, Claudius is one of my favourite books.

Re: bolded. Tai Pan is the title.

I really enjoyed his book Whirlwind, set in Iran during the '79 revolution.
