Description
A fascinating journey through 40 of the most significant events in recorded history, with "headlines" from "Athen and Sparta: 'It's War'" to "After 27 Years Mandela Walks Free"   From the suicide of Cleopatra ending 4,000 years of Egyptian pharaoh rule to Marco Polo’s wondrous journey along the silk road to the court of Kublai Khan, from the arrival of the First Fleet in Australia depositing a motley crew of convict colonizers to the bloodbath at Stalingrad during World War II which resulted in a staggering 1.5 million casualties--history's rich story is told here with an original, engaging approach. This enthralling overview of significant events brings together some of the biggest, most captivating "lead stories" the world has ever seen. Short, easily digestible chapters make this an ideal way to catch up on famous historical events, and illustrations and period photography enhance each story. This look at headlines that shook the world is the perfect gift for amateur history buffs, students, and anyone else seeking to understand the world we live in today.
