Giles Milton – When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain: History’s Unknown Chapters

Giles Milton – When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain: History’s Unknown Chapters

A bit like going through a museum of curiosities—Philadelphia’s Mütter Museum especially comes to mind. The book consists of short vignettes about unusual and improbable happenings, and historical oddities both great and small. While quite morbid, Milton has a sharp sense of humor and an eye for the absurd.

Milton’s When Churchill Slaughtered Sheep and Stalin Robbed a Bank: History’s Unknown Chapters is more of the same.
