A thorough and well-researched account of post-war Europe which remains focussed despite the breadth of topics in scope.
Also particularly fascinating to read about topics such as the EU, NATO, and the Cold War in parallel to current affairs.
This is a stunningly comprehensive book. The amount of research must have been absolutely staggering, and it's a fascinating read. It is brilliantly written, and will leave you with a very clear understanding of how Europe stands today, in relation to its history since 1945.
The narration is actually quite good, though many of the foreign names have been overdubbed somewhat inelegantly.
Overall, I highly recommend it. It will take some time, however, so be forewarned. It's quite an endeavor.
