World history, huh? There's just so much that has happened over the many millennia that this planet has existed for (and we're not even talking about the time dinosaurs roamed if you believe in the Big Bang thing, that is). We're talking about the time when man existed and was intelligent enough to start making records of his doings, inventions, and even crimes. Do you think you can answer these questions about the world's history?
We're going to ask you the creator of the printing press and when the first 'modern' Olympic games were held. We want to know what you know about the Cold War and if you know the names of the cities which suffered atomic bombings. We also want to know who created the Mona Lisa, which party the infamous Adolf Hitler ran and what battle a certain short man (also debatable) was defeated at.
If you can't answer these questions of this brief glimpse of our quiz, then we're not sure you'll be in the minority of people who can actually pass this test.
But if you want to try and if you call yourself a history buff, go ahead and give this quiz a whirl.
