Glenn latest book, Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America, was released today. The mission of the book is to share both the positive and negative stories from American history in a way that is both true and thrilling. On radio this morning, Glenn explained why he believes it is so imperative for us to share our history in an interesting way.
“I urge you to get this [book]. Somebody said to me last summer, ‘Glenn, when are you going to write a history book that our kids where want to read it and we will want to read it?’ And I said, ‘I swear it's like you are a paid plant because we have one coming out called Miracles and Massacres telling the good stories and the bad stories,’” Glenn said. “It's the best stories and the worst stories in America. We didn't pick the obvious ones.”
From Jack Jouette to Shay’s Rebellion, the Nazi saboteurs to the missing terrorist, Miracles and Massacres features 12 stories from American history from 1781 to 2001. Glenn explained that it is necessary to understand America’s mistakes as much as we recognize her successes, and it is in learning about both the positives and negatives that we are able to learn from the past.
The chapter devoted to the Nazi Saboteurs deals is titled “In Times of War, the Laws are Silent,” and, as Glenn explained, has as much significance today as it did 70 years ago. Glenn summarizes the story of the Nazi Saboteurs in the clip below:
