365 by W. B. Marsh

Book Description

Whether it is major political events like the USA's annexation of Texas (1 March) or incredible discoveries like that of Tutankhamun's tomb (26 November), every event in history happened - of course - on one of 365 days. Pore through history day-by-day with 365 and become engrossed in this lovingly constructed wealth of historical anecdotes. 365: Your Date with History is a fantastically browsable historical encyclopaedia, mapping the highs and lows of human existence day-by-day throughout the year. Each day is accompanied by historical facts and sometimes brief, often more lengthy, stories from a dizzying array of subjects. Written accessibly and with plenty of personality, 365 will be a have-around-the-house favourite for years.
