Lies, Damned Lies and History : A Catalogue of Historical Errors and Misunderstandings Paperback
From cats, spats and catacombs to the Wall Street shuffle, "Lies, Damned Lies and History" is an entertaining look at how historical events didn't always unfold as we think they did.
Graeme Donald takes the reader on a journey, century-by-century, showing how the truth we take for granted is a far cry from the facts.
This is not a book for those who like their history sugar-coated, but for those who truly want to see the past as it was.
It is a hilarious lesson that any history lover will delight in.
