Description:
After falling for one historical misconception too many, the time is now right to launch a spirited fightback. The moment has come to set the record straight, once and for all. Leading the way in this modern crusade comes Napoleon Wasn't Short and St Patrick Wasn't Irish, a lighthearted guide that reveals the many myths, fabrications and ambiguities found in the annals of world history. For example, Winston Churchill was not born in a ladies' toilet, Lucrezia Borgia was not an infamous poisoner and as you've guessed, "St Patrick Wasn't Irish"...Written with wit and fascinating insight, and covering numerous subjects - from royalty to religion, saints to statesmen, inventors and explorers, and the lives of famous characters throughout history - this book is guaranteed to astonish and inform, amuse and entertain.
