Law & Order: Gangsters, Vices, Military, Geopolitics …

At the Sport of History, we freely admit a partiality to the G's stories: gangsters, gambling, government scandals, girls, guns, and, of course, the occasional game. The working theory behind our stories here at SOH is that every story in human history can fall into one of four categories: Commerce, Entertainment, Religion, and Law & Order.

This page is dedicated to the largest category of those four: Law & Order. Covering everything from famous felons and criminal acts to military actions, geopolitics, vices (drinking, drugs, sex) and government involvement that is often purposefully hidden, these stories are guaranteed to make you look at global history in a whole new way.
