This is an auction for HISTORICAL BLUNDERS by Geoffrey Regan. review:

"In Historical Blunders bestselling author Geoffrey Regan turns his attention to the wider historical stage with this lively and entertaining collection of mishaps from the Classical Era to the Cold War period. The stories are as diverse as they are fascinating. Drawn from a impressively wide range of fields of human activity - political, social, economic, technological, medical and many more - they can be shocking as well as amusing. Historical Blunders brings together a wealth of stories of historical oversights, misdeeds, misdemeanours and plain old blunders, not previously collected in one volume. Discover how a vision of Russian soldiers led to the famine that devastated the Xhosa people. Learn which latter day Caligula elevated his pet labrador to the rank of colonel in the Romanian army. Find out how the Dutch prince came to arrange his own assassination and which Reformation clergyman's male chauvinist remarks cost him the chance of becoming one of Elizabeth I's bishops. These tales of historical mistakes and oversights make fascinating and entertaining reading and their broad appeal makes them ideal for the historian and general reader alike."
