History is storytelling. At least, good history is storytelling. Anyone can memorize and recite a bunch of dates and sterile facts, but bringing a moment in time to life in a way that is both informative and thrilling takes remarkable writing. That makes history an ideal match for audiobooks; listening to an impeccably written historical account is like listening to a chapter in the greatest book ever written. That puts a lot of pressure on the narrator and production team, and not every history audiobook hits the mark. But if you’re looking for the best history audiobooks, look no further than list with some of the best examples ever produced.
