WEBWIRE – Friday, February 22, 2013

Riverside, CA-2/23/2013 –  Best-selling author and Middle East historian Michael Rank has just released an exciting new book on the lives of history’s most brutal leaders. Watch history come alive as you look into the lives and times of the worst dictators and what caused them to turn out in such a way. You will learn about their reigns and violent actions, such as...

- Emperor Nero’s murder of family members, suspected arson of Rome, and widespread execution of religious minorities, which caused many early Christians to believe that he was the Antichrist

- Herod the Great’s use of crowd slaughter, family killings, and even infanticide to hold on to his rule

- Genghis Khan’s military conquests that killed tens of millions and caused millions more to flee their homes in fear, resulting in forests reclaiming abandoned farmland and carbon levels plummeting, actually creating man-made global cooling

- Vlad the Impaler (also known as Vlad Dracul, the namesake of the vampire) and his use of impalement to kill more than 20,000 victims, even causing a superior army turn around and avoid fighting him when they witnessed his carnage

These leaders and six others from history fill this book. Learn about how they earned their reputation as the worst dictators in history and why they are so infamous in popular culture today.
