About this product
- DescriptionHistory's Greatest Mysteries delves into the grey areas to examine the imponderable and sometimes unlikely stories of actual events and real people. From the gruesome murders committed by Jack the Ripper to the whereabouts of Lord Lucan, and from the loss of an entire continent to the case of a missing racehorse, we take a canter through history in an effort to shed a little light on to questions which, in all honesty, are never going to yield definitive answers. Some of the stories related in the following pages are deadly serious, some rather less so. There are cases of determined individuals who have struggled against the odds in an attempt to unravel the truth, while in others people have t let the facts get in the way and have made up any old nsense by way of an explanation. Sometimes the answer to the riddle is tantalisingly just out of reach. More often it defies any sensible or rational approach - which hasn't stopped some people from trying. But, in the end, it is exactly this sense of mystery, of the unkwn and the unkwable, which attracts us to these unfinished stories in the first place. After all, a world in which everything is transparent and thing remains uncertain would be a very dull place to live indeed.
