Debunking History by Edward Rayner

Book Description

History is full of myths, legends, fables, folklore, misinformation and misconceptions. Whether they have come about inadvertently or deliberately, many have ingrained themselves upon the public imagination. This book presents some of the most popular and most enduring of these myths from the American and French Revolutions to the two world wars and beyond. Arranged within well-defined geographical or thematic sections, and through a mix of short and long entries, each topic is clearly explained and the myth, error or controversy exposed. An authoritative, compelling and illuminating miscellany, here you can finally find a straight answer to all those niggling questions about the past.
