Frank  Fabian - The Biggest Lies about the Past


Why Napoleon was a PR strategist and Alexander wasn't all that great

The search for truth has always occupied the human mind. Nowadays, we can fall back on the latest scientific tools, copious sources and very precise methods to get to the bottom of what is true about historic events – with the result that in hindsight many aspects of history have to be completely rewritten.

This is exactly what this book has set itself to do: personalities and happenings from Moses to Bismarck have been examined, scrutinized and checked from all points of view. The result of this analysis is as revealing as it is fascinating and makes us look more critically at supposedly irrefutable facts.
