Overview

In this book, the author provides a march through history from 240 BC to the present. He presents it in more than 80 short stories, providing sometimes amusing but never dull and certainly interesting accounts of: What happened to the king who got killed by his doctor? Who was the pope who resigned in office? Or, why did Napoleon lose the battle of Waterloo? to give some examples. You, the reader, will be fascinated, surprised and entertained, but never be bored.

A most amazing book. One wonders where the author got his information. It is all so startling ,even controversial. It shows, how little we are told by our own government. I highly recommend this book since it reads well and the diversity of subjects let's the reader decide the subject of interest.

I rated this book as exceptional !! "This book should be on everybody's Top Ten must read list " It is extremely interesting and filled with so many bits of information and insight that you wouldn't find or read in other history books. It is a real eye opener !!!

The easy to read text provides an un-distorted information not only about American history and World War II, but also eye-openers about John F. Kennedy and the aftermath of the Dallas tragedy. Most amazing was the writer's discovery that most of the enriched Uranium for the first atomic bomb dropped, in August of 1945, on Hiroshima, came from Germany! The only negtive is that some of the illustrations are not sharp. Yet, all in all, excellent information for any history buff, and for anyone who wants' to learn more about history than was told in achool.
