"The Crusades, the Charge of the Light Brigade, D-Day - we've all heard of these events, but how much do we really know about them? HISTORY'S GREATEST HITS brings together the 37 most famous events from our past. Joseph Cummins explains each episode's historical context, its causes, how it unfolded, and what it led to. In doing so, he offers fascinating insights into the minds of the protagonists - including many of the greatest names from history, from Hannibal to Churchill, and Columbus to Kennedy. And he reveals just what made these incidents so significant and why they have gained a permanent place in our collective consciousness. Short, easily digestible chapters make this an ideal way to catch up on the history we've heard of and ought to know more about. Maps, illustrations and period photography enhance each story. With beautiful supporting illustrations and a dynamic design, HISTORY'S GREATEST HITS will be sure to capture the imagination and interest of young readers who want to know more about the world we live in." review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Joseph Cummins not only does his homework, but gets excited about it - and that excitement, wit and charm come through in every page. The books themselves are handsomely done, laid out in easy-to-read lengths with interesting side-notes and illustrations, along with maps."
