They Got It Wrong: History exposes historical fallacies around the globe from the Roman Empire to World War II. There are countless twisted, sanitized tales that have become entrenched in popular belief but are really now more than warped reflections of the truth—or flat out lies. Author Emma Marriot shines a light on these murky corners of history to separate out the facts from shadowy fictions and illuminate how and why these falsehoods got passed around as truths.
