+1 for 1776 - David McCullough voice and style are a joy to listen to. One Summer: America 1927 - Bill Bryson - also read by the author - excellent story about the momentous year when Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic, NY Yankees and Babe Ruth were at their finest and much more besides. Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory- Ben McIntyre - well read and intriguing. Welcome back BTW - great to have you back on air! :)

Ah, the earthquake, storm and tidal wave generating Huns :). Talking about the Huns, I recommend Barbara Tuchman's Guns of August as read by Nadia May - excellent narration. There is another version also available on Audible but I have not heard it. If I can make a second recommendation: 1776 by David McCullough (narrated by the author). Not quite Ancient History in either case but still history. Welcome back Mike. :)
@John Cox - thanks for the recommendation. For others, this is a sample of Chelmsford 123
