A Disastrous History Of The World Summary

A Disastrous History Of The World: Chronicles of war, earthquake, plague and flood by John Withington

John Withington's book is an epic journey through the annals of the disastrous events that have marked human history. In Part I are all the major natural calamities - floods, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis, plague and famine. Part II describes in vivid detail the greatest man-made disasters - war and invasion, persecution and massacre, riots and terrorism, explosions and fires, shipwrecks and air crashes. Out of all this horror, the author produces a highly entertaining and throught-provoking book.
