Hi there!

I was just wondering what books/biographies i should read to get a wider idea of the sort of topics and more in depth-knowledge on those historic situations in the A-level, before i begin in September?

I think that i will be doing both components:
1. The making of a Superpower: USA, 1865-1975
2. The making of Modern Britain, 1951-2007

Thanks!

I do Britain 1951-2007 and we were told a good book to read is ‘the history of modern Britain’ by Andrew Marr. It’s quite big and I haven’t read it myself yet but i’ve watched a few of his documentaries and really recommend!

Thank you so much! I will definitely pick it up this summer! Do you have any clues on American history?

Get the relevant book and revision guides to your course and read them
And for wider learning, watch some documentaries about it
