Vlad the Impaler The character Count Dracula is well-known throughout the world. He is a dark, seductive, pale man wearing a cape. His gaze is quite literally captivating, and he has the strength of ten men. The story, written by Bram Stoker in 1897, has been retold hundreds of times, but is there a historical figure upon whom the character is based? Is there really a Dr Vlad the Impaler The character Count Dracula is well-known throughout the world. He is a dark, seductive, pale man wearing a cape. His gaze is quite literally captivating, and he has the strength of ten men. The story, written by Bram Stoker in 1897, has been retold hundreds of times, but is there a historical figure upon whom the character is based? Is there really a Dracula? Many scholars argue that Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, is the real Dracula. He was known in western Europe for his cruelty, most especially his penchant for impaling his victims. He is said to have killed somewhere between 40,000 and 100,000 people during his crusade to stop the Ottoman Empire from expanding into eastern Europe. He was equally harsh on the people he ruled and is said to have taken great pleasure in torturing his victims. Inside you will read about... ✓ Vlad’s early life and family ✓ Rise to power: Vlad’s first reign ✓ War with the Ottomans, Vlad’s main reign ✓ Vlad’s imprisonment, third reign, and death ✓ Vlad Dracula’s legacy ✓ Vlad the Impaler in fiction: Count Dracula His story, however, is much more complicated than the oft-reported details of his atrocities would imply. He lived in a time of conflict where many were equally as cruel, and he is viewed as a hero in Romania where he is remembered as a protector of his people. This eBook tells the story of his life and times, and discusses his connection to the fictional Count Dracula, in a succinct, compelling manner, which makes for an entertaining read that is packed with historical information.

    "There is no doubt that Vlad III Dracula made his mark on history. He was a harsh ruler and a cruel adversary, but it is also true that he was a gifted strategist. He was also, at times, an honorable ally." To be honest, there wasn't much in this book that I didn't already know about Vlad the Impaler (also known as Vlad III, Vlad Tepes and Vlad Dracula.) But luckily that didn't take away any enjoyment in this book as I love reading about this controversial person in history. The few things I "There is no doubt that Vlad III Dracula made his mark on history. He was a harsh ruler and a cruel adversary, but it is also true that he was a gifted strategist.

But luckily that didn't take away any enjoyment in this book as I love reading about this controversial person in history. The few things I didn't know about him before reading this book were really interesting. It would also be perfect for readers who want to read and learn more about Vlad III. To be clear, Vladd III is NOT Count Dracula. Bram Stoker only took his name and based his character of Dracula on Vlad III, although even this is being questioned still. We don't actually know if he indeed used the Impaler as inspiration aside from the name. I've always been pretty intrigued by Vlad the Impaler and his complex personality. So this book was pretty compelling to me. My favorite chapter by far was 'War with the Ottomans, Vlad's main reign.' The Ottoman Empire also happens to be a favorite subject in history of mine. I always enjoy reading about it and the connection with Vlad III. Overall, I would highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys reading about history, Vlad the Impaler, the Ottoman Empire or this era in history in general. With only 48 pages it's a quick and easily read book.

    A piece of romanian history I've enjoyed this book about Vlad the Impaler. It describes a small part of romanian history. In my opinion is about honor and bravery, about alliances and treasons, about war and cruelty. Those were harsh times, and who knows how would this world look like today if things would have happened differently? I've liked the way the book is structured and that it draws a clear line between true facts and fiction.

For example Stephen lll of Moldavia is Stephen the Great. For sure I will read more of Hourly History's publications.

    Vlad the Impaler: A Life From Beginning to End by Hourly History I enjoy reading the Hourly History books when I need a quick read between non-fiction books. In real life He seems scarier than the character Dracula by Bram Stoker. When I read the reasons for impaling and how it was done it scared the crap out of me. more

    While lighter in detail than many articles I've read about good ol' Vladislav, this book does offer a decent overview of his life and legacy (especially for a book that co$t me nothing) and even had a few little factoids I hadn't seen elsewhere nestled in the text.

    2.5 stars actually, I think. It was concise and quick which is, I guess, what you’d expect from a book with “Hourly History” anywhere. I’m glad it was free. I didn’t learn anything new, but you might if you’re unfamiliar with the historical figure. I would suggest having a map of Romania on-hand and/or a pronunciation guide if you’re unfamiliar with the language. (That said, it’s just people names and place names so you might not need it unless you sound things out in your brain.)

    Poorly written This book didn't tell me a single detail I didn't learn in a documentary on the History channel over twenty years ago. I guess this is a book for someone who knows nothing about the man. However, I give it one star because it felt like each chapter was written by a different person and no editor bothered to read it before just slapping it all together and calling it a book. The chapters were quite redundant to the point of being annoying. Overall it was quite disappointing.

    I want to start this review by saying that before reading this historical book about Vlad the Impaler, I also first read the Hourly History book about the Byzantine Empire and then read the one about the Ottoman Empire but only until the chapter that culminated in the conquest of Constantinople before pausing that and jumping into this book immediately.

The main reason for that is that I wanted to better understand the history of the region and major figures that would be around during Vlad the Impaler's lifetime and the short but detailed format of the well written Hourly History series served as an excellent way to do that. So, in a way, I decided to experiment and turn this into a sort of loosely connected trilogy of history books. And I really, really enjoyed it that way. I have been interested in learning more about Vlad the Impaler since I recently watched the Dracula Untold movie and given that I have never been very knowledgable about Eastern European history from this era, I am pretty sure this method made me appreciate his life story more. The compilation of historical information flowed really well here as the author narrated Vlad's tale and while there are some parts that are dedicated to explaining the reasons he has been associated with the Dracula character, this book mostly talks what is known about the actual man. And what is known is this complex figure who lived in an extremely violent period in history is both terrifying and inspiring. Was he cruel and violent? Without a doubt and there were certain things he did that made me nauseated. And yet, it's understandable that so many of his countrymen saw him as a hero back then; a feeling that has endured to this day. His people were quite literally facing an existential threat and even those who survived were in imminent danger of losing their ancestral way of life to the Ottoman Empire and their holy war. For all his cruelty, he was fighting for them and was very effective against an enemy force that was much better equipped and vastly outnumbered them. One begs to wonder what may have happened if this very competent tactician had had more men and resources at his disposal when he needed them most but one thing is clear: there is a reason so many of his enemies were terrified of him despite having a much smaller army. Overall, this was an excellent historical account of a ruler that can easily be abhorred but also admired at the same time. And, despite all the legends that have spawned from this man, if even half the tales about his fierce life are true, then he makes a decent case for being more violent with purpose than most old vampires from the stories I know about that lack a strong purpose lack a strong purpose for thgeiur violence. And that is more incredible than fiction.

    The Balkans, a region lying northwest of Turkey, chiefly containing the countries of Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria has always been a hotbed of conflict. It was here in on June 28, 1914, in the city of Sarajevo that the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated, eventually leading to the First World War. In later years, when the Communist dictator Josip Broz Tito died, Yugoslavia was soon cast into a civil war, divided by ethnic lines. This region and its peoples have a long history o The Balkans, a region lying northwest of Turkey, chiefly containing the countries of Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria has always been a hotbed of conflict. It was here in on June 28, 1914, in the city of Sarajevo that the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated, eventually leading to the First World War. In later years, when the Communist dictator Josip Broz Tito died, Yugoslavia was soon cast into a civil war, divided by ethnic lines. This region and its peoples have a long history of war, inner strife, and turmoil. Their southern neighbors, the Turks of the Ottoman Empire, coveted the lands to the north and war was a constant bedfellow. Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia, was born in 1431. He was to become the ruler of this area in present-day Romania, north of the River Danube, three separate times. He fought the Turks and practically all of his neighbors at one time or another. His affinity for impaling his prisoners (and anyone else that upset him), by forcing a pointed (but not too pointed) pole through the anus or vagina, righting them and letting gravity and their own body weight finish the job. He employed a number of other unspeakable methods to achieve his goal of scaring away future invaders and transgressors. I grant you that Vlad’s methods were both cruel and inhumane, but weren’t much different from those employed by his neighbors. Vlad’s infamy stems from an entirely different and unexpected quarter. The Irish author Bram Stoker wrote a story that would unveil a world of perpetual darkness and forever strike fear in the hearts and minds of man. Count Dracula is purported to be based on this Middle Age devil, known as Vlad III Dracula. The book openly admits that the relationship with this Prince of Wallachia and Bram Stoker’s vampire are based on supposition and pure speculation. Today, an account of Vlad’s treatment of his enemies is horrific but in fact, at the time, it was no worse than other rulers. Dracula has lifted him from the bloody pages of Balkan history and given him lasting infamy. The volume of turmoil and violence, before, during, and after his life, makes the book both hard to follow and swallow (without gagging).

Even though the author of this book admits that what makes Vlad unique isn't his method of killing and dealing with his enemies, but rather the number of people he killed in battle and punished for minor offenses; a lot more time is spent discussing the black legends about him and that they could be true.

    Vlad Tepes, ruler of Wallachia three times. Cruel beyond belief. Fighter against the Ottoman invaders and therefore beloved by some of his people. Vastly outnumber by the invaders, prisoner, free man, murderer. Birth date unknown. Birth mother unknown. Exactly where born unknown. Those who were enemies of any kind could find themselves impaled on poles that were made somewhat dull on purpose. This method resulted in the death of some 40,000 to 100,000 people. Used biological warfare. Set people on Vlad Tepes, ruler of Wallachia three times. Cruel beyond belief. Fighter against the Ottoman invaders and therefore beloved by some of his people.

Used biological warfare. Set people on fire. Boiled people alive. Roasted some people. The book goes into all of this and ties it in to the legend of Dracula as seen in popular books, film, etc. Very interesting.

    Repetitive. And way too rushed. If you know nothing about the history of this era, you're screwed. Too many names thrown out at you with no background. Too many geographical locations with no mention of where each is. Too many Vlads and you should stick to one name for each, not use a different name for each Vlad each time. Luckily, I'm pretty well versed in this era or I would've been completely lost. Guess I won't be reading any other Hourly History shorts. Sad, because that's a great concept. Repetitive.

    Good Book With A Broad Overview This book is very well written and provides a decent overview of the history of Vlad as well as its implications in modern culture. The only issue I had was there seemed to be a few holes here and there were it almost seemed like events between dates were lost or muddled but I believe that is more due to the sources being difficult to find or read and not on the author's part. Good stepping stone to learning about the man.

    This is a really well laid out non-fiction book detailing the life of Vlad Dracula. It discusses his rise to power, family lineage, victories and defeats in war and the mythology surrounding both his reported methods of killing as well as how much he influenced Bram Stoker's book. It was an easy to read book, annotations backing up statements which lent further credibility to Vlad's history. Would recommend!

    Dracula! I don't know why Vlad Impaler Lord fascinates me so much. It frightens me a little bit to think of how he killed individuals regardless of how violent it was back in the mid to late 1400s. Even though this figure of history gives me the creeps, it is definitely tough not to pick up and read a novel about him. This is not the first book I've read about Vlad the Impaler and I can more then guarantee it won't be my last. Dracula! I don't know why Vlad Impaler Lord fascinates me so much.

    Like all of the Hourly Histories, this volume was informative and brief; However, much of the information was redundant, making it longer than necessary. It seemed to me that the author felt a need to generate a specified number of pages whether he had the content or not. I will still read every Hourly History I can get!

    Vampires are hold upon one of the most popular main characters of modern stories, but while learning the beginning of the myth, I wonder why. Even though a lot of this man's atrocities are hearsay, they are enough to chill me to the bone. He was a psychopath! Then again, I liked the recount of the facts made by this book, which tries to avoid gossip and focuses on historical occurrances.

    Hero, Devil, Saint and Prince Vlad III of Walachia is a complex historical figure, and this quick read brings him and his three time reign back to life... figuratively of course. Covering known history, literature and myth, the story covers the historical Vlad bad well as the Dracula mythos. A good read.

    An easy way to learn a lot quickly and enjoy it too. This hourly history release is particularly good and has come in handy during many pub quizzes now :) I enjoy that its a fairly balanced account - a historical narrative setting things within their context as opposed to a modern day judgement of Vlads life in the medieval times. A man who was fascinating and horrific.

    A spine-chilling read. The book presents a typical example of a person who faced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), in conglomeration with the ignorant mediaeval European society of those times and ended up being the feared beast whose atrocities he at once was himself critical of !

    This man was sick. I think in many instances he was trying to protect his people during dark times. But I think you have to be depraved to torture and kill others as he did. A lot of Eastern European names and history made it a little hard for me to follow casually. I was most interested in the facets of his life that I could relate to modern myth and lore that I've seen or read about. This man was sick.

    Average documentation regarding the Romanian ruler. Historical data show that these types of behavior were widespread in the Middle Ages. Only excessive media coverage to defame led to the creation of a negative opinion in Western Europe related to Vlad Țepeș. The same type of negative propaganda was used in the case of Romanian ruler Michael the Brave by the same European royal courts.

    If you're looking for a concise and well written overview of this colorful and controversial historical figure, this book is a great pick. Although it's short enough to be read in an evening, it lives up to it's promise of covering the life of the infamous Vlad, his family, the politics of his era, and it even gets into some of the vampire myth.
