From Moses’ challenge to the Pharaoh to the origin of the Grail myth; from the Pope’s extermination of the Cathars to Nostradamus’ travels in Italy; from the Spanish Armada and the Great Fire of London to Napoleon’s conquest of Egypt; and finally to the Angel of Mons appearing over the trenches of World War I. A secret occult history of the world told in seven chapters. Collects the first Secret History series in preparation for the second, coming in 2010.

I love alternative histories and this one rewrites everything, but leaves lots of great details in to explain mysteries great and small. I loved this series.
