Germany: A History is a decent overview of mostly the political history of the Germanies leading up to Germany, describing a period of about 2,000 years in central Europe. A work like this is mostly introductory, which is fine. The greatest commentary involves the time period of Charlemagne, Frederick Barbarossa, Frederick the Great and the 80 years from WWI to German reunification in 1990. Much of the book then connect to these time periods. The Reformation is the major section that does not focus on the political leaders, and instead illustrates the great cultural change of its time period. If you are looking for a decent overview of Germany history, this is a fine work.
