I don't understand - This is just a list of names. This source does not actually tell me who they are or what they did. I think this source is misleading. :l

Disappointed.

Sorry to hear that this resource is a bit confusing. The cards are supposed to show a name on one side and a brief explanation of their role on the other. Sorry if this wasn't clear.
