Product description

"History's Great Untold Stories: Obscure Events of Lasting Importance will open your eyes to significant places, events and peoples that have been largely excluded from the standard histories we learn yet have directly affected our history. From the Chinese explorations 100 years before Columbus that strangely left foreign lands for others to claim, to a Korean Empress often compared to Joan of Arc, whose assassination in 1895 paved the way to the aggressive Japanese imperialism of World War II, readers will witness first-hand the unheralded seeds of the modern age."
