Overview

They Got It Wrong: History exposes historical fallacies and explains how they came to be, as far back as the Roman Empire all the way up to World War II.

There are countless twisted, sanitized tales that have become entrenched in popular belief but are really now more than warped reflections of the truth—or flat out lies. Author Emma Marriot shines a light on these murky corners of history to separate out the facts from shadowy fictions and illuminate how and why these falsehoods got passed around as truths.
