Topic - History books

Si dH - on 29 Aug 2012
I've decided I'd like to read some history books. I don't know very much history, having not studied it past the age of 13, and am now more interested. A couple of years ago I read 'Empire' by Niall Ferguson and really enjoyed it as well as learning a lot I hadn;' known, so I'm looking for similar things - books that are very readable and interesting (not textbooks!) but also factual and a bit educational.
I'm more interested in political and a bit of military history, possibly some social stuff. I'd prefer something broad rather than too focussed on one specific event, person or place.

What recommendations do people have?
