About “Tiny Blunders/Big Disasters”
“For want of a nail the shoe was lost
For want of a shoe the rider was lost.
The rider the message, the message the battle, the battle the empire
The empire was lost all for the want of a nail.”
Have you ever wondered how often this “butterfly effect” of escalating calamity ever really took place ?
How often were mighty empires and international campaigns actually destroyed by
tiny quirks and witless blunders? Is it just a clever saying or did small, dark,
ominous events actually intervene to cause the giants to stumble into grief and to ruin ?
As the reader will see, it happened with amazing regularity. The largest of enterprises and the greatest
of governments laid low by the tiniest of bloopers. This website is a preview for the upcoming book
“Tiny Blunders/Big Disasters, Twenty-Nine Tiny Mistakes that Changed the World Forever.”
This review of human foibles includes some of history’s most dangerous organizations and imposing
personalities. A core sample from this list includes Richard Nixon, Adolf Hitler, JFK (and his
lengthy and entangled history of exotic paramours), the
Nazis, the Japanese empire, the Mafia and the Republican National Committee to name but a few.

additional pages will be added every two weeks. Please read us and rate the material as often as you like!
