Not yet rated | write a review
History is a catalogue of errors, and History's Worst Decisionsshines a light on fifty of the biggest. Starting with Adam and Eve's original blunder in eating the apple, author Stephen Weir takes you on a tour of catastrophes from antiquity to modern times. From the Trojan War to Gallipoli, from the Boston Tea Party to the Enron scandal, famous figures of ancient times, such as Cleopatra and Nero, rub shoulders with more modern culprits like Churchill and Mugabe.

History's Worst Decisions doesn't just point the finger at individulas; the actions of governments and corporations are also scrutinized. The motivations - often sinsiter, somtimes naive - that led those responsible to commit their mistakes are unveiled, as in the lasting impact that their decisions have had on the world that we live in today.
