"A useful guide."
(Choice)[A] useful compilation of essays covering the major events of the20th century. Standing out from this overall impressive body ofwork are the contributions on the undertones and causes of WW I(Martel's area of expertise) and three chapters on often-overlookeddevelopments leading to WW II. Highly recommended. --Choice
