The ridiculous and reckless conflicts chronicled in Stupid Wars include the misdirected Fourth Crusade, the half-baked invasion of Russia by the U.S., the U.K.'s baffling Falklands War, Hitler's ill-fated Beer Hall Putsch, several incredibly foolish South American conflicts, the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and many more. Whether you're a future dictator, war-mongering politician, royal mistress, or history lover, these blow-by-stupid-blow accounts will teach you the valuable lessons you need to stay off the list, including:
Don't declare war on all your neighbors at the same time.
Working radios, accurate maps, and weather-appropriate uniforms are big plusses.
Large amounts of bird poop and very small islands are probably not worth dying for.
Never invade Russia.Seriously. It's a really bad idea.
