Extracts From: History Crumbs & History Crumbs II

by Lelio Finocchiaro

“History can be told in very different ways and still be faithful and accurate. So, basically any topic can be used as an excuse to find the right historical references.”

No matter if it is the origins of pizza Margherita or the legend of Holy Grail, pirates or the troubled history of Jewish people: in these pages there is room for everything.
Lelio Finocchiaro has managed to reconstruct human history, starting from ancient times, and go quickly through it. He chose some events – sometimes more meaningful ones, sometimes more interesting, mysterious and fascinating ones.
Lose yourself in this essay, which, just like a collection of stories, is able to arouse your curiosity “crumb by crumb”. Let the events capture you and get to the last pages being aware that you have learnt something, while having fun finding out new things about the past, which will make it possible, for you, to look at the present in a different way.

“Human beings have always been afraid of death. It is something innate. As a matter of fact, it is not easy to accept the idea of disappearing forever.”

Giants on Ancient Earth: An In-Depth Study on the Nephilim

by Jason Breshears

The records of the Old World excavated from the Near East to the western shores of ancient South America are filled with obscure references to a race of giants. Even most biblical scholars are unaware of the over 80 references to giants found in the books of the Old Testament just as historians have overlooked the hundreds of references to gigantic people mentioned by ancient chronographers. The greatest common denominator in the pages of the world’s oldest epic texts concern giants. Enormous humanoid skeletons have been unearthed in the past and today, huge weapons and megalithic architecture explainable only by the presence of historic giants. This race in Genesis is called the Nephilim and this stunning research delves deeper into the mysteries of the giants than any other known work on the subject.



The Teutonic Knights: The Catholic Churchâ??s Most Powerful Warriors

by Conrad Bauer

The Teutonic Knights are said to be the toughest warriors the Catholic church ever had during the crusades and discover how this Catholic order has influenced our history and even, present times.

The Teutonic Knights may receive less attention than the other two Catholic orders of Crusadersâ??the Hospitallers and the Knights Templarâ??but their history is just as storied and complex as that of their monastic peers. They were founded in the Middle Eastern fortress of Acre in 1190 AD, and the duress of this war-torn pressure cooker developed in the Teutonic Knights a ferocity that has rarely been matched. The Teutonic Knights were toughâ??so tough that on some occasions just the sight of their heavy armor, huge broadswords, and helmets with horns reaching to the sky was enough to send their enemies into a full-blown panic.

Here in this book, we will explore the finer points of this mysterious order. We will cover who the knights are, where they came from, and where they may go in the foreseeable future. From the Crusades of Acre to the battlefields of World War Two, to the Teutonic organizations of today, we leave no stone unturned as we tell the story of this intrepid group of fighting monks. Come along with us as we delve into the history of the Catholic Church’s most powerful warriors.
