Monsters: History's Most Evil Men and Women

Monsters: History's Most Evil Men and Women is a non-fiction history book by the British Historian Simon Sebag Montefiore, who also wrote 'Jerusalem: The Biography', 'Young Stalin', and 'Heroes - History's Greatest Men and Women', to which this book is a counter.
