    I'm doing aqa history coursework too and in instances like that, I've just used the particular book I'm reading as the source not the one being referenced. You could just put both books in your bibliography just to be safe though?

    i didnt read it, i used that google thing and i found a quote in the book, just going to pretend i read it and reference where the quote is originally from

    they won't know if we havent read it, and would they even care? btw this isnt for historical interpretation, its a primary source (quote from the time), but is it still a primary source if it is wrote in the book by a historian?
