Keith Chaffee, January 28, 2019

Barbara W. Tuchman was born on January 30, 1912. Tuchman was a writer of popular history whose goal was to make history accessible and entertaining to the non-historian. Her output was small, fewer than a dozen books, but her work has remained popular decades after its original publication.
