You may think you know your history…but did you know that Winston Churchill tested biological weapons on a flock of sheep, or that Joseph Stalin organized a successful bank heist to help finance the Bolshevik revolution? Did you know that the infamous Mata Hari was most likely innocent of spying? Have you heard about the time an intruder broke into Buckingham Palace, surprising Queen Elizabeth II in her bed and enjoying a glass of whiskey before his arrest? Do you know about the two heroic men who escaped from Auschwitz to reveal the horrors of the Holocaust to the outside world? What about the family who survived for thirty-eight days at sea after their ship was destroyed by a killer whale? Sometimes salacious, sometimes inspirational, and always surprising, the true tales engagingly related in When Churchill Slaughtered Sheep and Stalin Robbed a Bank will entertain and enlighten even the most learned historian!
