This original and highly entertaining collection of more than 600 true stories and historical anecdotes... is a potpourri of historical gems; an assortment of episodes, curiosities, memoirs and snippets, funny stories and terrible - even fearful ones. It ranges from classical times to the Second World War, and unearths the unfamiliar and undiscovered byways of history. It is richly amusing, sometimes amazing, and at the least surely diverting.
