101 Stumbles in the March of History: What If the Great Mistakes in War, Government, Industry, and Economics Were Not Made? : <b>An all-new compendium of 101 historic screw-ups from the author of 100 Mistakes that Changed History.</b><br /><br />When asked to name a successor, Alexander the Great declared that his empire should go "to the strongest". . . but would rival factions have descended into war if he'd been a little more specific?<br /><br />What if the Vienna Academy of Art took a chance on a hopeful young student named Adolf Hitler?<br /><br />If Pope Clement VII granted King Henry VIII an annulment, England would likely still be Catholic today - and so would America. <br /><br />Bill Fawcett, author of 100 Mistakes That Changed History, offers a compendium of 101 all-new mammoth mistakes - from the ill-fated rule of Emperor Darius III to the equally ill-fated search for WMDs in Iraq - that will, unfortunately, never be forgotten by history.
