by H Baumann
In this book, the author provides a march through history from 240 BC to the present. He presents it in 65 short essays, providing sometimes amusing but never dull and certainly interesting accounts of: What happened to the king who got killed by his doctor? Who was the pope who resigned in office? Or, why did Napoleon lose the battle of Waterloo? to give some examples. You, the reader, will be fascinated, surprised and entertained, but never be bored.
