Webb Research Group frequently pursues important historical events that no one else has bothered to dig deep enough to find. Meticulously documented matters of historical record are frequently dismissed as "myth" because detractors don't do their homework first.
Many of the books in this section are the result of years of painstaking research and the refusal to accept "popular" knowledge as fact until proven so.
