Lies, Damned Lies and History: A Catalogue of Historical Errors and Misunderstandings
This collection takes the reader on a journey, century-by-century, showing how the truth that is usually taken for granted is a far cry from the facts. Amusing anecdotes and little-known facts travels through history, while teasing cross-references show how obscure events are linked. This is not a book for those who like their history sugarcoated, but for those who truly want to see the past as it was. Any history lover will delight in these revealing, hilarious lessons of how historical events didn't always unfold as was thought.
