If it is WW1 history that you like then there is no better source than Lyn Macdonald, her books are classics of the era and highly recommended. Also try Alan Clark's "The Donkeys" which chronicles the British High Command throughout 1915 leading up to the battle of Loos where the 10,000 British troops committed suffered 8,250 casualties, the Germans suffered none. It would have been worse but for the Germans refusing to fire anymore whilst what was left of the Brits retreated.
