Email: History 1

In early 2018 we were still dealing with Italian history from 19th century onwards to Berlusconi's times, from 'The Pursuit of Italy' by David Gilmour.
Since May we have been reading 'The Three Emperors', William 2nd of Germany. Nicholas 2nd of Russia and George 5th of Britain, by Miranda Carter. This starts with their childhoods and continues to the end of the 1914-18 war. We have reached the 1890s when Queen Victoria, their grandmother is an old lady, George is a prince and his father Edward is Prince of Wales, but Nicholas and William are full emperors with William showing his very erratic temperament. We shall be continuing this account till well into 2019.
We have space for a few more members who are willing to 'speak' to a section of the book.
