History of the Twentieth Century Volume 3 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Critics heralded the first two volumes A History of the Twentieth Century as "masterly" (Boston Globe) and "deft", illuminating, and fascinating" (Henry Kissenger).  Now, the final work in Martin Gilbert's magisterial and acclaimed three-volume history brilliantly charts the course of the twentieth century's last five decades.  Here are gripping narrative accounts of the wars in Korea, Vietnam, and Bosnia; the postwar reconstruction of Europe; apartheid; the arms race; the moon landing ; and  the extraordinary advances in medical science.  Mao started a cultural revolution, Martin Luther King, Jr., and John F. Kennedy were assassinated, and the computer revolution was begun.  The result is nothing less than extraordinary.

Synopsis:

With the same consummate skill with which he chronicled the events of the first 50 years of the 20th century, Sir Martin Gilbert brilliantly charts the course of that century's last five decades. This third volume contains accounts of the wars in Korea, Vietnam, and Bosnia, the postwar reconstruction of Europe, apartheid, the arms race, the moon landing, and advances in medical science. Three 8-page photo inserts. 58 maps.
