History Books  

In our History Books section, browse stories of the past including the life and death of a powerful Indian tribe, the U.S. Army in the time of World War I, the constant state of change and upset in the Middle East, a SEAL leader fighting on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, an ancient king’s life full of greed, turmoil, terror and heroism. Or perhaps, you prefer to go back in time with an ancient Egyptian queen, the rigid childhood of a Chinese-American girl growing up in the U.S., the horror of a family surviving the Holocaust and genocidal camps in Nazi Germany. Whether you’re a history buff searching for your next fix or simply looking to brush up on your heritage, our selection of history books will have what you’re looking for. Curl up and feed your curiosity – all for a low price. When you shop history books with Thriftbooks.com you spend less and read more.
