By Sandra Lawrence

Little Bee Books, £9.27, 64 pages, hardback


The success of Horrible Histories has firmly established that there’s a throng of young history readers eagerly looking to delve into the more grisly tales of the past. Confidently making their debut in this growing market is a new series of slim, strikingly illustrated volumes from author (and History Revealed contributor) Sandra Lawrence. Among this batch of vividly titled Grisly History books is one focusing on death and destruction – from infamous warriors to urban legends and much else besides. It’s a packed compendium of vignettes, providing a lively, often gory, look at the more bloodthirsty side of human nature.
