365: Great Stories from History for Every Day of the Year: Compact Edition

Author(s): W.B. Marsh

History

Every day of the year has a story to tell. Who was assassinated, acceded to the throne, fled from their country? Who was born, began an affair, was impeached, disgraced or knighted? What nation was born, what army defeated in the face of great odds, what era-defining book published?
Whether it is major political events like the Boston Tea Party (16 December), or incredible discoveries like that of Tutankhamen's tomb (4 November), every event in history happened â of course â on one of 365 days.

365: Your Date With History is a fantastically browsable historical encyclopaedia, mapping the highs and lows of human existence throughout the year. W.B. Marsh and Bruce Carrick have often deliberately picked stories to surprise â the day Rommel, the Desert Fox, committed suicide, the Duchess of RichmondâÂÂs ball three days before the Battle of Waterloo, attended by the Duke of Wellington and immortalised in Vanity Fair, Nelson joining the Navy at the age of twelve, and many more. Each day is packed with historical facts and sometimes brief, often more lengthy, stories from a dizzying array of subjects.
First published 2004. This abridged edition 2005.
