Overview

Arranged thematically into 75 entries, Graves of the Great & Famous tours the world exploring the resting places of leading artists, thinkers, scientists, sports people, revolutionaries, politicians, and pioneers.

From Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and Princess Diana to Napoleon Bonaparte, Eva Peron, and John Gotti, this book provides a guide to the graves of some of the most renowned figures (good and bad) throughout history. Some, such as communist leaders Ho Chi Minh and Vladimir Lenin, are interred in great mausoleums, where they are visited by millions each year; others are buried in little-known country graveyards. Featuring photographs of graves, cemeteries, graveyards, and mausoleums, Graves of the Great & Famous is a compact guide to the final resting place of the famous—and infamous.
