The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that follows a cast of characters living in the fictional town of West and East Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story primarily concerns the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his quixotic passion and obsession for the beautiful former debutante Daisy Buchanan. The Great Gatsby explores themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval, and excess, creating a portrait of the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties that has been described as a cautionary tale regarding the American Dream. Set on the prosperous Long Island of 1922, The Great Gatsby provides a critical social history of America during the Roaring Twenties within its fictional narrative. That era, known for profound economic prosperity, the development of jazz music flapper culture, new technologies in communication (motion pictures, broadcast radio, recorded music) forging a genuine mass culture; and bootlegging, along with other criminal activity, is plausibly depicted in Fitzgerald's novel. Fitzgerald uses many of these societal developments of the 1920s that were to build Gatsby's stories from many of the simple details like automobiles to broader themes like Fitzgerald's discreet allusions to the organized crime culture which was the source of Gatsby's fortune. Fitzgerald depicts the garish society of the Roaring Twenties by placing the book's plotline within the historical context of the era.

The fictional memoir of the fifteenth-century French heroine by the author of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Mark Twain’s final novel—and, by his own account, his best—is a fictional record of the life of Joan of Arc, as recorded by her loyal page and secretary, the Sieur Louis de Conte. In it, the celebrated satirist shows his great admiration for the Maid of Orléans. Beginning with her humble childhood in the French village of Domrémy, de Conte recounts Joan’s visions of Archangels and her divine quest to take control of the French army and liberate her country from the English at the age of seventeen.From her remarkable defeat of the English at Orléans to her Bloodless March to Rheims and the coronation of King Charles VII, the story progresses to Joan’s tragic defeat and imprisonment, the high drama of her trial, and her execution at the hands of the English.

Envision 10,000 mounted men of one of the best cavalries the world has ever produced strung out along 13 miles, marching around Robert E. Lee's right flank, taunting J.E.B. Stuart to come out and fight. In one of the most thrilling and detailed accounts of one of the most important battles of the American Civil War that most people know nothing of, James Kidd tells this story and much more of the Michigan Wolverine Cavalry under the command of George Armstrong Custer. The popular image of General Custer, James Kidd wrote in 1908, is incorrect. He was not reckless or wasteful of men. The battle was Yellow Tavern, part of the Spottslyvania fight, and Phil Sheridan later said he believed it was the greatest cavalry engagement of the Civil War. J.E.B. Stuart was fatally wounded in the fight. At Gettysburg, Brandy Station, the Trevillian Raid, Kilpatrick's Richmond raid, and the Shennandoah Valley, the Wolverines played a crucial role in the Union victory. Kidd also provides wonderful details about the movement of large cavalry units, especially when they must be turned in battle. In one of the best-written memoirs of the Civil War, Kidd has presented a picture of the Michigan Cavalry and its unforgettable leader that helps complete the image of Custer as a soldier. For less than you'd spend on gas going to the library, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

The Sieur Louis de Conte, a fictional character invented by Mark Twain, tells the story of Joan of Arc, Louis' childhood friend and an actual figure in history, who fights for French independence from the English in the 15th century. Louis accompanies Joan as her secretary through the battles and witnesses her trial and execution at the hands of the English. Joan of Arc grows up in Domremy, a small village in the eastern part of France. Armagnacs, or French loyalists, populate her village in an area dominated by Burgundians, or English sympathizers. Her life proceeds normally until she hears voices from saints and angels who urge her to fight for French independence from the English. She must first convince the governor of Vaucouleurs to provide her with an armed escort to Chinon, where Charles VII resides, the dauphine of France. The governor refuses, but Joan persists until he agrees to provide the armed escort. Only sixteen years old, Joan leaves for Chinon with veteran knights, Louis the narrator and several of her childhood friends. The issue of Joan hearing voices garners an inquisition from the Roman Catholic Church, presided over by French clergymen. Joan answers all questions satisfactorily, and she is set free to do whatever she can for France. The inquisition also allows her to wear men's clothing, as women's attire is not appropriate for her tasks. While at court in Chinon, Joan sees through an imposter substitution ruse and persuades the genuine Charles VII to make her the leader of the entire French army. She leads the army to a successful campaign against the English at Orleans, which is under siege, by using aggressive attack strategies rather than the passive tactics to which the French are accustomed. Afterwards known as the Maid of Orleans, Joan secures the road to Rheims, thereby enabling the coronation of Charles VII as the King of France. She then attempts to take Paris, but is pulled back due to political treachery. During her military career Joan also fights and wins the battle of Patay, a turning point in the Hundred Years' War. While on a minor campaign to free the town of Compiegne, Joan encounters the English and her personal guard defends her, although surrounded. With all her personal guard killed or wounded, the English capture Joan. She tries to escape twice and fails each time. The English move her to Roen where she defends herself from the Catholic prosecutor, Pierre Cauchon, the Bishop of Beauvais. Cauchon must obtain a confession from Joan because she thwarts his efforts to trick her during several trials. His purpose is to prove Joan a criminal against the Roman Catholic Church in order not to make her a French martyr. He finally resorts to wearing Joan down physically until she signs a false confession. The English then burn Joan at the stake; however, the goal of not making her a martyr fails. Mark Twain's story about Joan of Arc is historical fiction because he fleshes out probable scenes and adds other fictional characters. This makes for an entertaining story based on historical fact, but not a biography in the strict sense of the genre.
