Product description

Joseph Cummins recounts thirty-seven of the best-known episodes from the past. Not only does he relate and re-create these events in captivating fashion, he also analyzes their impact on subsequent history and explains the reasons for their enduring fame. Accompany Hannibal over the Alps with a herd of elephants and learn what led him to attempt such a daunting and outlandish undertaking. Cross the Delaware River with George Washington to discover how his subsequent raid on British-held Trenton, New Jersey, changed the course of the American Revolution. Follow the British Light Brigade into the "Valley of Death" during the Crimean War and find out how this farcical military blunder was immortalized through its rendition in verse. - We've all heard of these momentous events, but how much do we really know about them? And why do we remember them? - Inside you'll find thirty-seven in-depth accounts of the greatest events in history. Gripping, revealing, and informative, "History's Greatest Hits" is a fascinating read for history buffs, or anyone seeking to understand the world we live in today.
