But What Do You Actually Do?

A sparkling memoir by one of our greatest historians.

This wonderfully entertaining journey takes us from Alistair Horne’s childhood as a wartime evacuee in America to his career as a highly successful historian and biographer, via a stint as a foreign correspondent for the Daily Telegraph.
