A treasure trove filled with fascinating anecdotes about the tiny ripples that have caused big waves in history, "Hitler's Secret Jewish Psychic" will cure you of two misconceptions: the first being that history is relentlessly boring and the second that significant historical events are caused by significant and great causes.
Here you'll unearth a multitude of facts you never knew were true. You'll learn some unbelievable things about some of the most prominent figures in history (Picasso was stillborn until his uncle revived him by blowing cigar smoke in his face ). You'll discover facts about some of the most famous wars in history (Japan actually manufactured balloons carrying deadly diseases, which they attempted to send over the Pacific Ocean to the United States). Other strange facts include:
The career Fidel Castro almost chose over his leadership of Cuba
Where Eli Whitney got the idea for his invention of the cotton gin
What almost happened during the Wrights brothers' first successful flight
Why certain literary works almost never saw the light of publication
What day should have really been designated Independence Day
The truth behind Winston Churchill's daring escape from a Boer War prisoner-of-war camp
Franklin Roosevelt's campaign cover-up
The behind-the-scene beliefs of Isaac Newton
And many more
It is true that many things you hear should be taken with a pinch of salt; nothing proves this so much as "Hitler's Secret Jewish Psychic," where you will discover the outrageous secrets history has tried (and failed) to keep.
