Easy-to-read, thorough but brief even-handed review
I read before traveling to Bulgaria to do a grad level social assessment in Bulgaria. Felt better prepared to understand the culture and governmental processes after reading it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Thorough and easy to read
This book presents the history of this country in a surprisingly thorough manner for a shorter history book. The struggles and strife of a people and a country are excellently portrayed with clarity and a hint at the emotions they must have felt. The struggle to protect the borders of the land from powerful enemies coming from all directions provides an interesting theme which kept me reading. I was also emotionally touched by the bravery of these people in defying Hitler and refusing to send Jews to their deaths during WWII. I was inspired to begin learning in more detail about periods and events in Bulgarian History.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
