Did I Just Write the Largest History Book Ever?
By Christopher A. Lawrence
The Dupuy Institute
I think I just wrote and had published the largest single-volume history book ever. It is a military history of a World War II battle called Kursk: The Battle of Prokhorovka. Not entirely sure if it is the largest history book, but at 1,662 pages, the book has more pages than any other book I know of. The word count is 791,698, which may also be a record. Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is only 645,000 words long and Tolstoy’s War and Peace is a paltry 587,287 words (in English). But these are stories that the authors made up, not history. Hopefully nothing was made up in my book. We even considered the tacky tag line: “Larger than War and Peace, except there is no peace.”
