Just about everyone has heard of Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, and Napoleon, three historical figures who, for better or worse, radically changed the world. But what about William Walker, Fred Ward, and John Singleton Mosby? They didn't live centuries ago and what they did also changed the world we live in. And each of them faced almost unbelievable odds...and won. Here are just a few covered in the book.
- William Walker recruited a handful of barflies in San Francisco and not only conquered a country but frustrated the plans of the world's greatest empire.
- And John Singleton Mosby, a Confederate private, carved "Mosby's Confederacy" out of what is now suburban Washington and prolonged the Civil War at least six months.
- In World War I, Paul von Lettow Vorbeck, the German commander in East Africa, showed the world that black soldiers could fight as well as Caucasians.
