    This bumper collection provides the perfect introduction to Ann Cleeves' bestselling stories. It contains five novels in the Vera series (adapted into a hit ITV drama starring Brenda Blethyn) and five books from the Shetland series (adapted by the BBC into a popular show starring Douglas Henshall).

    Available for an unbelievable Book People price, the first five books in the Vera series follow Vera Stanhope as the detective investigates a series of strange occurrences across the North Pennines. She starts by joining three very different women as they arrive at an isolated cottage to complete an environmental survey. But when they get there, they find the body of one of Bella's friends... Vera also makes fresh inquiries into the decade-old case of the murder of a 15-year-old girl; and investigates the disappearance of her hippy neighbour.

    Set in the remote community of the Shetland Islands, the five Shetland books follow Jimmy Perez as he encounters all manner of evil characters. He finds his neighbour left for dead after being strangled; looks into the case of an amnesiac's 'suicide'; and has to deal with the discovery of a woman's body at the supposed sanctuary of the Fair Isles bird observatory.

    All based around his popular BBC documentaries, the books are passionately written and will delight any armchair historian. In Vikings, he goes beyond their bloody reputation to discover the truth about them and how they managed to build an empire that lasted nearly 200 years.

    In A History of Ancient Britain, Neil looks at half a million years of human history, taking in everything from Ice Ages to the departure of the Roman Empire in the 5th Century AD. A History of Scotland looks at one of the oldest countries in the world's diverse past and how the tales of failure, submission, thwarted ambition and tragedy often badly serve this great nation and focuses on the rich tapestry of its intricate past. It perfectly captures the essence of Scotland and its place and standing in the world.

    Published in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum, this three-book collection brings together a fascinating and authoritative social history of the Second World War.

    A Prayer for Gallipoli covers the Great War from the point of view of a chaplain. Kenneth Best had no military training, so to fulfil his pastoral role, he had to get close to the front line and work with troops as they were under fire. As his empathy for the troops grew larger, he became more and more disgusted with their leaders. These diaries provide an insight into the horrific realities of trench warfare.

    The Secret History of the Blitz by Joshua Levine looks at the people that are not normally mentioned during accounts of the War - those spivs, outcasts and unsung heroes who were in the shadows; and D-Day to Victory features the diaries of a British tank commander as the war finally came to an end.

    All written using archive and primary sources, these are candid and compelling reads about the triumphs and tragedies of war.
