Description

Here is a journey of exploration through history's great decisions and those who had the courage to make them. In brief, compelling, and inspiring vignettes, best-selling historian Alan Axelrod pinpoints and investigates the make-or-break event in the lives and careers of some of history's most significant figures. Axelrod reexamines history by revealing the answer to the fascinating question of why the people who made history made their choices - and conveys the resonance of those choices today.

The 46 profiles range from ancient times to the present day and include Cleopatra's decision to rescue Egypt; Washington's decision to cross the Delaware and win; Gandhi's decision to prevail against the British Empire without bloodshed; Truman's decision to drop the A-bomb and end World Ware II; Rosa Parks' decision to sit in for civil rights; Boris Yeltsin's decision to embrace a new world order; and Flight 93's decision to take a stand against terror.
