To fill some gaps in our historical knowledge and sought the authors provide readers with "Closed pages of history." This book resembles a multicolored mosaic - a variety of colors (which is reflected even in the titles of the sections), a kaleidoscope of people and events, which are explained in it. Equally colorful is likely to be and the picture of readers' opinions. Not everything in this book is equivalent, not all authors' judgments can unconditionally accept. Sometimes the authors themselves - surprising estimates that destroy conventional ideas, almost paradoxical conclusions (somewhere on the edge of reality and fiction) - if provoke the reader to argue with them, but in any event, encourage him to define his attitude to the given historical facts and evidence.
