The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody Paperback
by Will Cuppy
Just what was so great about Peter, Catherine, Frederick and Alexander?
What did Cleopatra see to admire in the fat man with a beard, Mark Anthony?
Why do people suffer from Montezuma's revenge? This light-hearted romp through history sets off with the conundrum of the two Egyptians, carrying on to explore the Strange Bedfellows of Attila the Hun, Charlemagne and Lady Godiva, ending up in Merrie and the roamings of Christopher Columbus, et al.
It is a journey through the annals of history with the heroes and villains of the past as your fellow travellers: Lucretia Borgia, Lady Godiva, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and George III.
Will Cuppy's profiles of the good and the great make you realise that the truth of history is far stranger than the fiction!
