More addictive and mind-blowing true tales from history, told by Giles Milton - one of today's most entertaining and accessible yet always intelligent and illuminating historians.

This program is read by the author, the host of the popular podcast Unknown History with Giles Milton.

In When Churchill Slaughtered Sheep and Stalin Robbed a Bank, the second installment in his outrageously entertaining series, History's Unknown Chapters, Giles Milton shows his customary historical flair as he delves into the little-known stories from history, like when Stalin was actually assassinated with poison by one of his inner circle; the Russian scientist, dubbed the "Red Frankenstein", who attempted to produce a human-ape hybrid through ethically dubious means; the family who survived 38 days at sea with almost no water or supplies after their ship was destroyed by a killer whale; and the plot that served as a template for 9/11, in which four Algerian terrorists attempted to hijack a plane and fly it into the Eiffel Tower.
