HIDEOUS HISTORY: Death and Destruction

SANDRA LAWRENCE    Book Number: 86482    Product format: Hardback

Grim and gruesome but fun at the same time, 10-14 year olds can learn history as never taught in school. Madame Tussaud had been a talented student of a medical wax sculptor and taken life masks from famous people like the writer Voltaire but was forced to turn her skills to clambering through piles of dead bodies looking for famous heads to immortalise like that of the decapitated King. She narrowly escaped the guillotine herself and had a shaved head to prove it. The French Revolution, Marie Antoinette, the guillotine, Vlad and Castle Dracula, all about pirates, Empress Wu Zetian who murdered her own new-born daughter just so she could accuse her rival Empress Wang of the dirty deed, Al Capone, deaths of the Roman emperors, the Vikings and Valhalla, the Battle of Bosworth 1485, the Princes in the Tower, Rasputin and the end of the Romanovs, here is all you want to know about history's dark side. 64 big bloody colourful pages with specially commissioned artwork and fact boxes, and glossary. A companion to code 86483 Trials and Trickery.
