History's Trainwrecks

by Stacey Roberts

This is the stuff they never taught us in history class.

Ever wonder why famous historical figures like Aaron Burr, George McClellan, Douglas MacArthur, Cato the Younger, Julius Caesar, and many others fell from the great heights to which they had ascended to end up in death or disgrace?

History's Trainwrecks explores the self-destructive tendencies of historical figures who lose everything even when the prize of a lifetime is in reach, often costing them a treasured place in history.

History is full of trainwrecks, and we can’t look away.
