Forgotten History: Captivating History Events that Have Been Forgotten (American History, Ancient Greece, Egypt)
 
Product Description:

History Holds the Key to Understanding the Present


Do you want to know when the first peace treaty came into play?

What about the strange disappearances in the 1500s?

Do we really know everything about WWI and WWII?

With history channels focusing predominantly on WWI and WWII, we are losing out on the rich history of the previous eras, not to mention some unknown events within the World Wars. This book holds the key to unlocking a world of forgotten events and moments.

In this book, you'll discover a variety of historical events covering the span from the turn of the common era through to WWII. Within this book is a record of events once forgotten or previously unknown that have helped shape history and the world we live in today.

Publisher's Note: This expanded second edition of Forgotten History has FRESH NEW CONTENT with more captivating history


History holds the key to understanding the present. Our past explains where we have come from and where we are heading. Although humanity can determine the steps it will take in the future, history often shows us the cycles that humanity repeats. A wise student will see these cycles and learn from them in order to better shape the future.

How can we know our history and what shapes us if we have forgotten great historical events and occurrences?

To fully understand where we come from and what we have achieved, both great and devastating, we need a more holistic history book. This book attempts to fill in some of those blanks. The historical events listed in this book are not all that have been forgotten, but it is one step closer to fitting the missing puzzle pieces into our already grand puzzle.

Within this book's pages, you'll find the answers to these questions and more. Just some of the questions and topics covered include

  • The Meaning of History
  • The Mysterious, the Unknown, and the Trivial
  • Plato’s Lost Island Empire
  • Medea’s Dragon
  • The Ancient World of Written History
  • Wars and Rumors of Wars
  • Forgotten Stories of the New World
  • And much more!

Think of it as a photo album of your parents’ and grandparents’ childhood. This is a moment where you can peek into the past with great excitement, anticipation, and wonder.

Product Description:
Greek Mythology is an enormous field of study and a brief guide is a daunting task for any writer. The myths have a way of entwining one with another, and it is difficult to present a coherent story line without feeling one has omitted the best part of the story.

Inside you will read about…

- What Is A Myth? - The Sources Of Greek Mythology - The Creation Of The Universe And The Gods - What Of Man? What Of Woman? - The Greek Pantheon - The Trojan War - The Influence Of Greek Drama - Two Greek Mortal Heroes In Mythological Tales This guide succeeds in presenting an overall sketch of the creation of the world and the battles that follow, resulting in Zeus taking his place as the supreme god and ruling the earth from Mount Olympus. It covers the creation of man, it seems, as a bit of an afterthought for the amusement of the Olympians and some of the most famous stories that have come down to us via the writings of the great dramatists of the Classical Age. There are concise biographies of the twelve gods that make up the Olympians as well as of the heroes of the Trojan War.

Greek Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans (Heroes and Gods, Ancient Myths)
 
Product Description:

Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans


Did you know that Zeus loved many women, both goddesses and mortals?

Did you know that he turned himself into golden rain for one damsel who was locked away in a tower, and turned himself into a swan for another beauty?

Did you know that he kidnapped one young princess which led to her brother founding the city of Thebes?

And did you know that, to protect his own power, Zeus swallowed his first wife, just as Cronus had swallowed his own children in a previous age?

Greek myth is full of fascinating tales of Titans and Olympian gods. Some of it makes us wonder if there might be some hint of truth behind those stories, no matter how outrageous they may sound. What parts of those stories were merely symbolic and what parts were literal?

This book contains a brief, but unconventional look at the Titans and Olympian gods of Greek mythology. Brief, because a thorough treatment of these legendary super beings could take thousands of pages. Unconventional, because digging for truth is far more interesting than reciting old stories which have little relevance to us today. Attempting to reveal some semblance of truth brings the stories to life. It gives them relevance to our modern world. Here, we will look at many of the more fascinating stories which kept the Greek mortals entertained for hundreds of years. After all, they didn’t have iPhones and computer tablets.

Within this book's pages, you'll find the answers to these questions and more. Just some of the questions and topics covered include

  • The Nature of Myth
  • Primordial Beings and Titans
  • Creation of the Universe
  • Birth of the Titans
  • Stories of a Primordial Universe
  • Children of Cronus and Rhea
  • Trouble in Heaven
  • Titans vs. Gods
  • New Pecking Order
  • Prometheus and the Humans
  • Zeus and His Ladies
  • More Fun from Olympus
  • Metis and Athena
  • Cecrops and Dragons
