Europe: A History by Norman Davies
Europe: A History

MSD71, December 6, 2008

A really enthralling book. This book did exactly what I wanted, it lead me by the hand through the whole of the history of the European Continent, relating all the major happenings and the reasons why they happened. It also gives a good description of what was happening on the periphery of major events and how the two were intertwined. Obviously the real details of most events are not gone into, as nearly 1400 pages are more than enough for one book, but there are obvious points where Davies drops teaser for you to delve more, and every 5th page or so had me surfing the web for more details on specific events of interest to me. Also if you read this book with a copy of "Periodical Historical Atlas of Europe
Expert v. 1.2" software it will greatly enhance your experience, (and no, i have nothing to do with the company). All in all a GREAT book to spend time reading and enjoying.
