Historical stories from Ingrid Pitt

Headlines as History
Before you throw the newspaper that has been in the bottom of the bird cage for as long as you can remember, read the headline - it could be worth a fortune.

Oradour Sur Glane
There were so many 'crimes of the century' committed in the 20th Century that it is hard to point a finger at the worst atrocity. What happened in the tiny village in France in 1944 takes a lot of beating.

The Lady Who Won The War
She was the pretty seventh daughter of a Warehouse Man in Camberwell, but she grew up to give Winston Churchill a cheque for £1,500,000 and expected a kiss for it. Sadly Winnie declined and offered her a cup of tea.

Old Mother Shipton
Ma Shipton was the acknowledged ugliest woman in Britain. What took her from the obscure cave in Yorkshire to scaring the pants off Henry Vlll in London?

Wild West
Was the Wild West as wild as it is cracked up to be? How would the legendary gun slingers fare on a Saturday night out in Swindon? And why was Jane a Calamity?
