Ok it might have been here for a while without me realizing, but the AE e-books are really awesome .

How did you do it guys? Did you enslaved part of the editorial staff? Which would explain why Paul is so touchy these days.

Cyrus Shahmiri gets credit for creating the concept and format of an All Empires E-Books section. He has provided some of his collection so far. Northman has added his web mastery as only he could.
If you have e-books that you would like displayed then let one of the staff know.

John H. Haaren - Famous Men of the Middle Ages
Rafael Sabatini - The Life of Cesare Borgia
Thomas Carlyle - History of Friedrich II of Prussia
Joseph Campbell - The Hero with a Thousand Faces
Carl von Clausewitz - On War
Francis Bacon - The New Atlantis
Thomas Hobbes - Leviathan
Mark Twain - On the Decay of the Art of Lying
Thomas More - Utopia
Adam Smith - The Wealth of Nations
John Maynard Keynes - The Economic Consequences of Peace
Carlton J. H. Hayes - A Political and Social History of Modern Europe vol.1

H.W.C. Davies - Medieval Europe
Robert F. Pennel -  History of Rome from the Earliest Times Down to 476
Hutton Webster - Early European History
J. Fitzgerald Molloy - Royalty Restored, or London under Charles II
Ramsay Muir - The Expansion of Europe
Giancarlo Casale - The Ethnic Composition of Ottoman Ship Crews
Walter Pater - Studies on the History of the Renaissance
Phiip Schaff - History of the Christian Church vols. 1 to 6
Arthur Conan Doyle - The Great Boer War
Washington Irving - Chronicle of the Conquest of Granada
The Counter Inteligence Corps School - Counter Inteligence Corps History in World War II
Armgaard Karl Graves - The Secrets of the German War Office
Snorri Sturlson - Heimskringla or The Chronicle of the Kings of Norway
Nennius - History of the Britons
Jean Froissart - Chronicles
John Buffa - Travels through the Empire of Morocco
Lord Dunsany - Tales of War
Niccollo Machiavelli - On The Art of War
Niccollo Machiavelli - History of Florence and of the Affairs of Italy

Amazing. Don't forget to add the Chinese historians (I'll try to sniff myself some rights to edit that place also - then Seko hasn't got to fear the Platypus any more).

Snorri Sturlson - Heimskringla or The Chronicle of the Kings of Norway
James Ingram - The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
I'd like to see these ones too! Alot of good information comes out of these books, though you still have to take that information with a grain of salt as it can be biased.

Machiavelli's Prince and Discourses would be a nice addition, as would (all of) Orwells books. Most are small enough to read online, I read Animal Farm online once.

Can't do that.
