Tiny blunders/big disasters [eAudioBook]

Knott, Jared2022
The small things that had great historical consequences …How often does a single tiny mistake cause an entire civilization to collapse? More often than you think! Listeners of Jared Knott's book Tiny Blunders/Big Disasters will be amazed at the little things that changed history in a big way. Here are a few examples: A single document poorly designed by one single clerk in one single county changed the outcome of a presidential election and led directly to a major war. A soldier accidentally kicked a helmet off of the top of a wall and caused an empire to collapse. A small mechanical device several inches long failed to function, which changed the outcome of WWII and led to the deaths of millions of people. A man failed to gather his army in time to defend against an attack because of the temptation of opium and a young slave woman. And many more!Hypnotic and addictive, these well-researched, factual stories will keep you listening far past your bedtime. Showing human weakness at its very worst in critical moments, this book is the "butterfly effect" in human history reviewed. "Heart-stopping, compelling, and fun!"
