History is full of myths, legends, fables, folklore, misinformation and misconceptions. Whether they have come about inadvertently or deliberately, many have ingrained themselves upon the public imagination. This title presents some of the most popular and most enduring of these myths from the American and French Revolutions to the two world wars and beyond. Arranged within well defined geographical or thematic sections, and through a mix of long and short entries, each topic is clearly explained and the myth, error or controversy exposed. An authoritative and illuminating miscellany where you can find a straight answer to all those niggling questions about the past.
