*NOW WITH A FUN PUB QUIZ* 'An idiosyncratic ride through history' Independent 'Holland and Sandbrook have pretty much reinvented popular history for the modern age' The Times

The nation’s favourite historians, Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook, take on the most curious moments in history, answering the questions we didn’t even think to ask . . .

- What was the most disastrous party in history? - How did a hair appointment almost blow Churchill’s cover? - Why did the Nazis believe they were descended from the people of Atlantis? - What made Alfred the Great so great?

From a British political leader who allegedly plotted to feed his lover to alligators, to a Brazilian emperor whose subjects mistook him for a banana, there is nothing too big or too small for Tom and Dominic to unpick.
