AP* European History
Making a mountain out of a Churchill.
Whatever happened to the first Defenestration of Prague? How many Napoleons are too many Napoleons? Why does Shmoop remain convinced that Winston Churchill jokes are the best jokes ever? Uncover all these mysteries and more in our guide to AP® European History.
In this guide, you'll learn
- why it's a terrible idea to start a land war in Russia in the middle of the winter (yes, Napoleon, we're looking at you).
- why an important moment in the French Revolution took place on a tennis court.
- why starting a new church might be the most melodramatic response ever to a bad marriage.
And much more! Plus you'll get to enjoy all of our favorite European history jokes. For example, what do champion historians like to have for breakfast?
