Publisher's Summary

Fascinating Footnotes from History details 100 of the quirkiest historical nuggets - eye-stretching stories that sound like fiction but are 100 percent fact.
There is Hiroo Onoda, the lone Japanese soldier still fighting the Second World War in 1974; Agatha Christie, who mysteriously disappeared for 11 days in 1926; and Werner Franz, a cabin boy on the Hindenburg who lived to tell the tale when it was engulfed in flames in 1937.
Peopled with a gallery of spies, rogues, cannibals, adventurers and slaves, and spanning 20 centuries and six continents, Giles Milton's impeccably researched footnotes shed light on some of the most infamous stories from history.

A book you can listen to again & again. Some of the things I had heard before but the stories were well written and well told. A must for history buffs.
