365 carefully selected historical events come together to produce a unique history of the world.

History is an infinite reservoir of stories, examples, warnings, explanations, jokes, rebukes and inspiration . . . You can’t understand the present if you can’t understand the past.

From the Armistice ending the First World War on 11 November, 1918, to the attack on Napoleon by hundreds of wild rabbits on 12 July 1807, there is no such thing as a day on which nothing happened.
