  In reply to: I'm seeking Back Room Book Recs  posted by FormerIrishHoya

Anything by Laurie King (but "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" is the best possible start).

Anything by Teddy White (but "In Search Of History" is a wonderful start)

Master and Commander (the first of 21 books)

Flashman (in a variety of stories; you either love the guy or hate him)

Path To Power (volume 1 of a magical biography of Lyndon Johnson)

My final suggestions:

Lee and Grant: A Dual Biography (it brought tears to my eyes)

And, of course, Manchester's Churchill (a little hero worship is not bad)
