Three years ago, New York Times bestselling author BRAD MELTZER was shopping for clothes with his daughter, and all he could find were shirts with princesses on them. Being surrounded by history all day as the host of HISTORY CHANNEL television show DECODED, Brad knew there were better role models and heroes for his children to want to emulate.
