    A disappointment.

    Shame on me I didn't read the fine print when purchasing this book.

    I was hoping to get the complete, 4-volume set.

    Sadly, when I received it, I discovered that it was abridged.

    Wish I could get my money back.

    Very abridged!!! Didn't see it listed this way, except I now can make it out on the picture of the cover of the book. Should have known with Christopher Lee also listed as an author. Don't make the same mistake that I did.

    I also missed the"abridged" description of this book. It is more a list of historical dates than a historical story. I recall the four volume of books by the same title is a much more entertaining read. Save your money and don't buy this abridged version.

    Don't buy this if you are looking for the four volume set.  Like the other two one-star reviewers, I missed the very fine print regarding the abridged edition.  I guess it is better than nothing.  But, no much.
