bookshelves: history, didn-t-finish
Read in February, 2012

An excuse to put together a collection of essays on bad decisions in history. There are some good potted accounts of complex events, though I can't verify their accuracy. There are times when he clearly doesn't know the difference between England and Britain, using them interchangeably, which casts doubts on his accuracy elsewhere.
