Forgotten History : Unbelievable Moments from the Past (Reprint) (Paperback) (Jem Duducu)
About this item
Not all history is recorded in school textbooks. Quite often the most intriguing (and most bizarre) bits are forgotten and fall away into obscurity. This fascinating book shines light on the almost forgotten, wonderfully strange, and often hilarious moments of history that would otherwise be lost forever. Split into four main eras—ancient, medieval, early modern, and 20th century—this light-hearted book is full to bursting with the bits from history that even a history enthusiast may otherwise have never known. From the time a Pope put his dead predecessor on trial all the way up to the awkward moment when the U.S. Air Force accidentally dropped nuclear bombs on Spain, discover the weird and wonderful history that you didn’t learn about in school.
