History isn't just dry facts and endless locations. It is the story of people, of those who changed events, made events, and did things that changed the world. It includes the 300 Spartans who fought an enormous army to the death and paved the way for democracy in Western Civilization. The Founding Fathers of the American Revolution who chose to try a political experiment that would lead to a level of freedom few have ever known. Then there's the Boer in South Africa who defeated a Zulu Army. These are just a few examples of overcoming tremendous odds to win the day.
Truth is stranger than fiction, and you'll find the greatest history here.
