Top 10 books in History

Each Monday, we do a drill-down on the top 10 books in a particular genre. This week we look at current bestsellers in the History genre:

#1#2#3#4#5
#6#7#8#9#10

Of these books, I've read two: Unbroken, by the marvelous Laura Hillenbrand, and Thomas Paine's American revolution-era classic, Common Sense.
 
I'm intrigued by Double Cross, especially after recently reading A Genius for Deception, which I really enjoyed. Subtitled How Cunning Helped the British Win Two World Wars, it tells the story of how the Brits used camouflage and trickery to deceive their enemies during these great conflicts.

Let us know if you've enjoyed any of these top ten books!

Note: In building this list, we use our KindleBoards Top 10 Bestsellers by Genre page - something we developed for our readers to be able to instantly survey a grid of Amazon's most popular books. It's updated real-time, and allows you to scroll to the "next ten" for any genre. Try it out and let us know what you think!
