History absolutely fascinates me and has been the constant inspiration over the past few decades. There are some magazines out there that focuses very specifically on certain parts of history, but in History today there is a title that really captures a mood and a moment. In my books I like to take one subject and really explore that, and History Today is similar – it could be anything from the Romans to the Tudors. What I also admire is the relevance that’s attached to pieces in terms of how the actions of those in the past affect how we live today. I think any good history lesson and any good history magazine needs that.
What’s fascinating about history is that it moves with us, and whether you are into the monarchy, the Romans or more recent wars and conflicts, History Today always presents the facts. What I like about this magazine is that it doesn’t necessarily take sides – unless pretty much everyone else in war situations! It’s about an honest look at how a conflict developed and, ultimately, what the outcome was. Carefully written, it lifts the lid on the real components of what make us the people are today… our history, and the actions of our predecessors.
