Who Was Mr. Nobody? by Edward Rayner

Book Description

Everyone has had the experience of hearing, seeing or reading something they just know can't be right: the man in the pub claiming that someone has 'proved' Napoleon was murdered; the reputable historian who writes that George II died on the toilet, or the feature film that shows Rasputin, shot repeatedly, rising from the icy river Neva, still alive. Wouldn't it be richly satisfying to clear up these mysteries and misrepresentations? In the follow-on to their highly successful "Debunking History", history buffs Ed Rayner and Ron Stapley put their egghead brains to the task of establishing the correct answers to a host of teasing historical questions and exasperating mysteries. Now, the indefatigable myth-slayers cover world themes and events from the Princes in the Tower to the first man on the moon. They look at the death of Hitler and find out who the real Snow White was and whether she lived with...seven short miners. They also reveal all on the identity of Tom, Dick and Harry, the sinking of the Lusitania, Howard Carter's trickery and the real events behind the saying 'Sweet Fanny Adam'. Anyone who enjoys quizzes, brain-teasers or a good argument will relish this book.
