It was on your screen when you watched the 2018 Olympics, and it’s in the background every time Donald Trump sends out a tweet about Kim Jong-un. It’s the Korean War.  You may not have heard as much about the Korean War as you have about the American Civil War, World War II, or the Vietnam War. It’s not the topic of dozens of movies every year, and many Americans never learned about it, even once, in school. The Korean War was part of the Cold War - a more familiar subject - but while Sputnik, the Berlin Wall, and MAD have faded from our collective memory of what the Cold War was, the Korean War remains the one part of the Cold War that’s still active.  The Korean War has everything: rebel uprisings, a totalitarian regime, mad dictators, and mysterious, lying media. It might sound like it’s right out of a dystopian sci-fi novel, but it really happened, and is still happening today.  With this audiobook, you’ll finally learn the ins and outs of the Korean War. You’ll learn the key players and the big events. Who was Kim Il-sung, and what is the demilitarized zone? But you’ll also learn some facts that get left out of the history books. So buy this audiobook and get ready to find out: Why Korea was a prime target for a Cold War conflict How a dictator comes to power What life was like for normal Korean citizens during the war How you can visit North Korea today - and why you might, or might not, want to And much, much more

When we learn about the presidents, most often we learn about a few of their accomplishments that they had while in office. However, this book is going to show you the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to the lives of these men.  At the end of each chapter, you will find trivia questions and answers that are going to allow you to learn even more about the men who have been in charge of the United States of America. You are going to learn how war not only challenged these men but how it affected who they were. You will see how great decisions were made as well as some that were not so great.   In the end, you are going to find that these men were in fact just men who took on a huge responsibility. Some of them were successful, some of them failed miserably, but each of them, with their own hands, molded the US into what it is today.

The American Civil War Trivia Book: Interesting American Civil War Stories You Didn't Know

Summary

If you went to school in the United States, you probably learned about the Civil War - but this audiobook won’t be like what you learned in history class. Maybe your teacher took the controversial stand that the Civil War was all about states' rights...or maybe you learned all about the horrors slavery, but never quite figured out why things didn’t get better after the war ended. If you didn’t go to school in the United States, things are even more confusing. When the media is full of references to the Confederate flag, the legacy of slavery, and poverty in the American South, you might have a vague sense that things are bad because of the Civil War...but why? Why does a war that happened over 150 years ago still cast a shadow over the United States? This audiobook will tell you why. It will lead you, step-by-step, through the causes of the Civil War and the effects. But unlike your high school history teacher, it won’t put you to sleep with long-winded biographies and lists of dates. The names you’ll learn are the big players, the ones with big personalities who made big differences. In just a few minutes a day, you can hear bite-sized stories from the Civil War - quick, easy explanations to guide you through the main points, with just enough scary, surprising, or just plain strange facts to keep you coming back for more. Each chapter ends with a bonus helping of trivia and some quick questions to test your knowledge. By the time you’re finished, you’ll know all the facts your history teacher never taught you - from who said slavery was a "positive good" (and why they thought that), to who dressed up in women’s clothing to escape from Union soldiers.
