Book Introduction: Creator of the bestselling The Brick Bible series, author Brendan Powell Smith turns his acclaimed storytelling and illustrative talents to bring to life some of the most shocking, pivotal, and bizarre moments in the history of the United States.From John Wilkes Booth's diabolical plot to kill the president, vice president, and secretary of state in a single night to John Hinckley's deranged bid to impress actress Jodie Foster by shooting Ronald Reagan, Smith brings an eye for meticulous detail and a sense of both gravitas and whimsy toward his subject matter, retelling the fascinating and often tragic stories behind attempts on the lives of a dozen US presidents. Relive the events leading up to John F. Kennedy's fatal ride through Dealey Plaza in Dallas. Rediscover the stories of how Gerald Ford survived two assassination attempts by women just seventeen days apart. Learn how a failed businessman hijacked a plane and planned to crash it into the White House to take vengeance on Richard Nixon for the Watergate scandal.With more than four hundred highly detailed illustrations (including recreations of many famous photographs and historical scenes), Smith has created a book that will captivate even those who wouldn't normally think to pick up a history book. It’s history made fun!Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
