History is invariably written from the perspective of the winners. But losers also have stories to tell. And there are valuable lessons to be learned from the defeated. Join author Michael B. Davie as he examines the meaning and significance of such diverse events as the l700s Acadian expulsion in Canada; Vietnam War and the defeat of Walter Mondale to Ronald Reagan in the United States; and the forced famines of the Ukrainian Holocaust. It's a fascinating look at those who faced life's trials - and came in second.
