Overview

They Got It Wrong: History exposes historical fallacies around the globe from the Roman Empire 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.

A good quick read. For the non-history buff who wants easy reading on the go.

The author actually makes history fun to read about in this small but concise book. He takes events out of history, such as the first Thanksgiving & the Russian Revolution, and sets the record straight on what REALLY happened! The chapters are short and the contents are precise and documented. I believe it's published by Reader's Digest which adds to the authenticity of the contents. Very much recommended.
