My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Any person remotely interested in history will find this book very captivating. This book is a visual delight. It is filled with records, photography and illustration designs from the various eras making it easier to get a sense of feel during particular events. Moreover the book is objective and comprehensive as it follows for the most part a chronological account of events over the years.
If you are curious on how and what happened during the world wars, how geography changed over the years, when certain inventions were devised , when some of the most important discovery were made and much more, then this book does a wonderful job by describing/illustrating them in linear format.
