General History

At Pen and Sword, we strive to bring you closer to the past. This can be through helping you trace your roots - our extensive genealogy list contains the works of many leading experts in the field. Hand in hand with this is our social history list, which helps you discover more about the background history of your ancestors.

Transport history, particularly the history of trains and railways, is set to become an important area of our list and this will grow further throughout 2014 and 2015. Local history has dominated our list for many years, particularly when related to war. The new series, Towns and Cities in the Great War, reveals how our home towns played their part.
