History's Great Untold Stories: Obscure Events of Lasting Importance will open your eyes to significant places, events and peoples that have been largely excluded from the standard histories we learn yet have directly affected our history. These stories come from far-off lands and little-known places and are as engaging as they are important. History fans will be captivated by the chronicles of events that led to monumental changes in the global geopolitical landscape. From the Chinese explorations 100 years before Columbus that strangely left foreign lands for others to claim, to a Korean Empress often compared to Joan of Arc, whose assassination in 1895 paved the way to the aggressive Japanese imperialism of World War II, readers will witness firsthand the unheralded seeds of the modern age.
