Our History of the 20th Century

As Told in Diaries, Journals and Letters
Published by Michael O’Mara
Compiled by Travis Elborough

The momentous events of the last century as recorded in the personal writings of those who lived through them. Published by Michael O’Mara.

In Travis Elborough’s expertly curated collection of diaries, letters and journals, the great and the good rub shoulders with the obscure, the unsung and the everyday to bring us a unique history of Britain during the 20th century.

From the journals of Queen Victoria to the first instant web message from Ted Leonsis to his wife (‘Don't be scared ... it is me. Love you and miss you.’), these accounts offer candid and intimate insights into the epoch-making events of the century – from the Boer War to the founding of Google, via the Easter Rising in Ireland, the Moon landing, the Beatles and everything in between.
