The Greatest Lies in History examines specific episodes in history to identify the reasons why politicians, religious leaders and others have supported some of the most outrageous lies. Analytical in approach, it examines the lie, the official truth, the historical evidence and the legacy of the lie...Case studies include the true story of the fate of the prisoners of the Bastille in the French Revolution; the deliberate damage done to King Richard III's reputation by his Tudor successors; serious questioning of the traditional justification of D-Day in World War II; and many more.

About the Author:

Alexander Canduci lives in Sydney, Australia, and has had a lifelong love affair with ancient and medieval history. In 2005, he published Getting It Right: The manipulation of history. His principal areas of interest are the Roman Revolution, charting the years of the fall of the Roman Republic; the Empire of Byzantium from its founding through to the Fourth Crusade; the history of England from the reign of Richard III through to the overthrow of James II; and the history of the Reformation. In his spare time, he reads histories, composes catchy pop songs, and adds more books to his personal library of over 200 works on history.
