Unravel history's most puzzling mysteries in this beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched book. Why did the 'unsinkable' Titanic go down so quickly? Did the famous Hope Diamond really bring a curse on its owners or were the afflictions of murder, suicide, financial ruin and drug addiction that befell them a mere coincidence? And is the Turin Shroud really the burial cloth that Jesus' body was wrapped in following the Crucifixion? This book presents you with page after page of newly revealed evidence, provocative theories from the experts and 'see-for-yourself' photos and illustrations. From ancient puzzles to modern-day conspiracy theories, we give the commonly accepted 'official' view and then present you with all the overlooked clues, the latest evidence and new insights so that you can decide for yourself the real truth of each extraordinary story. You'll discover amazing new facts, see age-old myths shattered before your eyes and learn to pick out the red herrings from the real things. How Did It Really Happen? will change the way you think about history's strangest mysteries forever.
