History buffs, particularly those interested in modern Europe, will find this the most comprehensive book of its kind published in the past ten years. Especially admirable are the sections on communication, transportation, agriculture, and politics of Central Europe, a labyrinthine subject Blanning somehow makes lucid. Not at all a rehash of the Reign of Terror or great naval battles of the Anglo-Dutch War, or whatever, this is a bird's eye view, with both the forests and the trees. Indispensable for a amatuer or professional historian's library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
