Barbara W. Tuchman

Barbara Wertheim Tuchman (January 30, 1912 - February 6, 1989) was an American historian and author.

Tuchman was an author of popular history, selling millions of copies. Her clear, dramatic storytelling covered topics as diverse as the 14th century, and World War I.

Tuchman was the author of books which conspired to be more popular than the established classics of the field. Inventing the Middle Ages by Norman Cantor, a history of medieval historians, describes her context or lack thereof.

Partial List of Works

She won twice the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction, firstly for The Guns of August and again for Stilwell and the American Experience in China.
