Historical Biographies

#1
I enjoy reading biographies of significant historical figures. I’ve got several on my bookshelf, mainly ones with some military connection. Some of the subjects were heroes, some were monsters and some were simply men of their times, but they were all interesting.

Anyone else enjoy reading biographies and if so who of?

The ones on my bookshelf at the moment are:

Alexander the Great
Julius Caesar
Attila the Hun
Charlemagne
Saladin
Genghis Khan
Kublai Khan
Tamerlaine
Sir John Hawkwood
Ivan The Terrible
Peter The Great
Catherine The Great
Napoleon
Nelson
Wellington
Simon Bolivar
Hitler
Stalin
Marshal Georgi Zhukov
Che Guevara
Fidel Castro

The last few years I have mainly read military biographies or books about wars and battles. Sometimes I do read music biographies. The last music one I read was by the Ramones tour manager.
