Title: l’Ensauvagement de la Prydanie: un pays détruit en siècle (Prydania’s descent into savagery: a country destroyed in a century)
Country of Origin: Saintonge
Authors: Jeanne-Solange Chanfrault, Ketilbjörn Skarbövik
Publisher: Presse academique de l'Université de Saintes (University of Saintes Academic Press)
Year of Publication: 2020
Synopsis/Blurb: One of the first history books delving into the recently-concluded Prydanian Civil War, historian Jeanne-Solange Chanfrault of the University of Saintes and her graduate student Ketilbjörn Skarbövik analysed the roots of the war that nearly destroyed a nation. Chanfrault and Skarbövik trace the fault lines to the 1920s and 1930s, with the rise of the fascist regime of King Richard VI of Prydania. The Prydania of King Robert VII was but an aberration, a veneer of placidity where radicalised movements were brewing underneath. The subsequent Social Commonwealth and Syndicalist governments were reactions to each other, when the extreme polarisation tore apart society and country.

“l’Ensauvagement de la Prydanie” is a well-researched, unbiased, third-party analysis of the turbulent recent past of the Kingdom of Prydania. Chanfrault and Skarbövik remain objective yet sympathetic when writing about Skarbövik’s country of roots. The story is ominous; a cautionary tale on how a country can be easily torn apart.

The book was controversial at the time of its writing due to the honesty in which it notes the flaws in the nations strategy and their overreliance on outdated equipment and tactics. The author ultimately goes on to explain how the early setbacks Astragon suffered would eventually lead to major reforms which would see the exalted empire emerge victorious.

Title: Faim Froide: la catastrophe humanitaire en Hessunland au lendemain de la guerre gottienne ("Cold Hunger: the humanitarian disaster in Hessunland in the aftermath of the Gottian war")
Country of Origin: Saintonge
Authors: Gilles-Maximin de Montcharmont, Theobald-Heinrich Brockdorff
Publisher: Presse academique de l'Université de Saintes (University of Saintes Academic Press)
Year of Publication: 2016
Synopsis/Blurb: In the aftermath of the Gottian War, the country was destroyed and downtrodden, its people a pariah and ignored by the occupiers. The international community was slow to act, and the destroyed country descended into famine in the brutal winter of 1989-1990. Two Santonian journalists, Mériadec Rocquinarc’h and Adam-Denis Latteux, doggedly publicised the plight of the people of Hessunland, spurring Saintonge and the international community to act.

University of Saintes historians Gilles-Maximin de Montcharmont and Theobald-Heinrich Brockdorff chronicle the series of events that led to the death of hundreds of thousands of people - even more than the casualties of the war itself. De Montcharmont and Brockdorff draw not only from Rocquinarc’h's and Latteux' material, but from other observers, Hessunlanders, and even the occupying authorities. The book paints a complete picture of a societal and economic breakdown in a broken country ravaged by one of the worst wars in the modern era.

Title: Ríkibrjálæði: Prydansk af Richard VI og í Fasististríð (Realm of Madness: The Prydania of Richard VI and the Fascist Wars)
Country of Origin: Prydania
Author: Hallvarður Ektavon
Publisher: Uglubækur (Owl Books)
Year of Publication: 2020
Synopsis/Blurb: Historian Hallvarður Ektavon's second book on Prydania during the Fascist War since the end of the Civil War (and third overall) is an in-depth analysis of both life and government during the first Social Commonwealth regime. Ektavon explores the feelings of alienation and anger those left behind by rapid industrial and societal modernization in the late 19th and early 20th centuries felt and how this contributed to fascism's rise in a time when Prydania seemed to be becoming more open and democratic.
Both the Social Commonwealth government under the omnipresent figure of King Richard VI and the lives of everyday people under the regime are discussed in detail as Ektavon draws on private letters, personal journals, newspapers, and even the words of those at the top of the regime themselves to paint a near-complete picture of the first Social Commonwealth era. This approach allows Ektavon to explore everything from the particulars of Social Commonwealth government structure and how its internal policy developed to how the common citizen viewed the regime and reacted to it.
Ríkibrjálæði: Prydansk af Richard VI og í Fasististríð paints a complex picture of Prydania between the years 1937-1951, examining a dictatorship that valued bigotry and allusions of strength and tradition over coherent ideology and a fractured populous that at times seemed to both embrace and seem weary of the regime.

Title: Itwêwasinahikan Ayamiwin–Prêtansc (Dictionary, Tusacaw–Makari)
Country of Origin: The Tusacaway
Authors: Based on the works of Napis Otiwesamakew and Wealthow Scyfling, Compiled by the Spirit Chief Nûk
Publisher: Tusacwyan Archives
Year of Publication: 1883
Synopsis/Blurb: In 1088, Prydanian Vikings made contact with the Mistameka. In their initial collaboration, two translators from each party wrote down each-other's translated words onto papyrus scrolls. The scrolls were copied for each party. The compilation of papyruses also contained shared oral histories, stories of creation, photographs and depictions of their homelands. One facsimile of the scrolls were evacuated after the Vikings sacked Tawiscayew and relations began to sour. These scrolls were kept with the Great Mothers of the Mistameka in her archives of peculiarities for nearly seven-hundred years. In 1694, after confederation, the collections of state were compiled into into a central archives and placed under the custodianship of the Spirit Chief of the Tusacaway. In 1883, the famed Spirit Chief Nûk commenced his popular bookbinding campaign to record each of the delicate scrolls into publications. two of the original Tusacaw-Makari scrolls had been lost by that point, but the remaining 32 were quickly catalogued into the contemporary dictionary. Copies are not very common, and often need to be sought from city librairies to get a hold of.
