Roman Days: The Age of Conquest:
When the potato got to Europe, it changed the course of European history. Before
the potato, the northern tier of Europe, the population was relatively small and
was held back by regular famines caused by failures of the grain harvest.
The further north you go, the dicier it is to grow wheat. And so the center of
gravity in Europe, before the potato, was the Mediterranean, where you could
grow grain more reliably. The potato did very well at the more northerly areas.
It did very well in wetter areas, and it did very well in really poor soils.
So suddenly there was this vast new source of calories that could underwrite the
growth of the population, such as never would have happened without the potato.
Since one individual can grow so much food, you need fewer people in the fields
to support an urban population. So it's really hard to imagine the Industrial
Revolution proceeding as it would without the potato to kind of support it. This
New World food remade the Old World.
3. Nazis told porkies
about 'pig' Hitler's war

NEW research has undermined the idea that Hitler was a World War One hero whose
wartime experiences propelled him to power.
A new book challenges the commonly held notion that he was considered a brave
member of his close-knit regiment, and that his experience during the Great War
radicalised him and formed his world view.
Dr Thomas Weber's book, 'Hitler's First War', argues that this story was a
fabrication created by propagandists to broaden Hitler's appeal to German
Newly discovered letters and papers suggest Hitler was referred to as a "rear
area pig" (etappenschwein) by comrades, as rather than carrying messages between
trenches on the front line, he was a dispatch runner up to 5km back.
The book suggests the Nazi Party suppressed and discredited accounts of World
War One that showed him as anything other than heroic. Dr Weber said: "The myth
of Hitler as a brave soldier was used by the Nazi party in order to extend its
appeal beyond the far right.
"They went to great lengths to protect this idea, and through my research I
discovered that a memoir written by one of his comrades was significantly
altered between its publication in 1933 and the outbreak of World War Two."
He suggested that the fact Hitler was awarded the Iron Cross had more to do with
being known by the officers who could make recommendations, than his heroics in
'Hitler's First War' will be available in bookshops from September 16.
