A very well and plainly written book with a broad brush European perspective of European history. I'm only 2/3 through but find when i pick the book up i can't put it down. Geert Mak is a storyteller. I find his style comfortable and valuable. History is too often the big picture. While Geert does not miss the big picture, he doesn't forget the history of the individuals. The world is far more interesting through the thoughts of those who live in it. Great read, and highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
