READ Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ë Giles Milton Giles Milton Ë 0 REVIEW REVIEW When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain History's Unknown Chapters Obscure and addictive true tales from history told by one of our most entertaining historians Giles MiltonThe first installment in Giles Milton's outrageously entertaining series History's Unknown Chapters colorful and accessible intelligent and illuminating Milton shows hi. This is the ultimate airport book Seriously for uite a while we kept coming across it in every single airport magazine store until my boyfriend eventually bought it during some layover It was the memorable title and a really fitting cover design that first caught out attention Because we re both that shallowThe episodes in When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain refer to both the big official history and small personal histories Some of them are very well known and everyone has surely picked up those stories somewhere in textbooks documentaries and online I even remember my grandfather telling me some of them when I was little I wasn t a big fan of fairy tales and those were an alternative But they are still interesting Interesting as in unfathomable bizarre perplexing insane conceivable touching A mixture of pure insanity and genius crazy chance and bad luck My reactions went from tears to angry disbelief the surviving kamikazes to disgust over human stupidity the last fallen soldier in WWI Though this is not only an airport book but also definitely an airport read A travel read actually All of those history bites are well researched and provided with a list of further reading material in case you would want to turn the sketch into a detailed picture But they are all really short three four pages probably never than five None of them take than two minutes to read about a tenth of the time you need for a single comic issues Those are basically historical finger sandwiches pick one up between sips of coffee while waiting for your travel companion to finish in the restroom while ueuing in order or at random It s like reading really cool stuff on Cracked but indefinitely pleasant than fumbling around your phone And I d just love a complementary piece on science

Really great little book Some have banged on it because of the length of the stories or that you can find materials on the Internet Maybe I m wrong but that s kinda the point of the book Read some stories you haven t heard of then if particularly interested do learning on the subject Picking up a 250 page history book that says on the back it has multiple stories and expecting every detail might mean your expectations are over reaching not that the authors information was under reaching

As posted on Zezee with BooksThe second nonfiction book I ve read this year and it was uite fun When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain is a history book about facts not commonly discussed The book is divided into two sections which are further divided into several parts and are composed of short essays that are no than 3 or 4 pages longThe book is a uick read coming in at 261 pages which includes lists of suggested readings for the topics covered Most of the essays are written in a light hearted tone with jabs thrown at certain figures whose actions seem a bit comical Other times a serious tone is affected when the events and figures being discussed are placed in either inhumane or dire situationsI enjoyed reading this book I picked it up by chance while visiting the library because the title caught my attention I didn t know what to expect but I was glad to find that it is easy to read because of the short snappy essays and that it s uite entertaining as well I also like that we are given some background details to better understand why an event occurred or why a person did somethingOf the essays these stood out the most to me When Hitler Took Cocaine which talks about Hitler s cocaine addiction as well as the concoction of drugs his personal physician Theodor Morell fed him The last sentence in this essay is pretty interesting It is ironic that the man charged with restoring Hitler to good health probably did than anyone else to contribute to his decline The Long War of Hiroo Onoda about a Japanese soldier who kept conducting guerilla raids in the jungles of the Philippines 29 years after World War II had ended He didn t stop fighting until his commanding officer who was luckily still alive visited him and told him the war is over Japan lost and he should stop I love the opening sentence to this essay His home was a dense area of rainforest and he lived on the wild coconuts that grew in abundance His principal enemy was the army of mosuitos that arrived with each new shower of rain But for Hiroo Onoda there was another enemy one that remained elusive Surviving Hiroshima and Nagasaki which is about Tsutomu Yamaguchi who survived both bombings and later became an advocate against the use of nuclear weapons He died in 2010 at 93 years old Barking for Victory about a dog that served in the US Army during World War I and advanced to the level of sergeant through combat He was the only dog to do so Who Killed Rasputin which is of course about Rasputin s death It disputes all the myths surrounding it but I prefer the fantastical recollections surrounding his death The Last Eunuch of China which was an interesting read about the life of the last eunuch Personally I would have been pissed because it seems that soon as Sun Yaoting got his dick chopped off the emperor abdicated his throne That really sucks All he wanted to do was serve his emperor When Lenin Lost His Brain It s kind of gruesome but basically Vladimir Lenin s body has been on display for almost nine decades somewhere in Russia The corpse is missing its brain which was removed to be studied By the way here s an article about it that appeared in The Atlantic Into the Monkey House which is about Ota Benga a pygmy brought from Congo and kept in the monkey house at the Bronx Zoo in New York The American Museum of Natural History retains a life size cast of Ota Benga s head and shoulders To this day it is not marked with his name or any indication that he was a human being The label has just one word pygmy The Human Freak Show about Sarah Baartman also known as the Hottentot Venus She was brought from Cape Town to England to be paraded about to display her body large buttocks and genitalia I ve known about both Baartman and Ota Benga before reading this book but reading about them again really angered me especially Baartman s story Even in death she was still displayed She was dissected and her genitalia were pickled to be displayed along with her skeleton in the Mus e de l Homme France until 1974 In 2002 Nelson Mandela asked that her remains be returned to South Africa for a proper burial Emperor of the United States about the dude who declared himself emperor back in the 1860s It s kind of funny The Man Who Bought His Wife was a really cool read that would make a great historical fiction story The short of it Florenz Szasz a Hungarian teen who was abducted and made a slave was sold to Samuel Baker uite an adventure there because he didn t have the money to buy her who became her husband and brought her along on his excursions in Africa Let s Talk Gibberish which is about the use of Navajo language in World War II because codes sent in Navajo were impossible to breakOverall I almost listed all the essays in the book above I enjoyed reading this book and I learned loads from it So if you re fascinated by history would like to read some uirky stories about real people and occurrences or would just like to try a uick nonfiction book I highly suggest that you give this one a try
