What a Story!


Yesterday’s adventures for today’s readers

History isn’t just what is taught at school desks. It's also, and above all, a great story. A story of compelling, stimulating, sometimes frightening, always incredible… but real events.

  • Incredible real stories from ancient and modern history.

  • Each volume features a small appendix at the end to deepen the knowledge gained, including news, curiosities, and anecdotes.
