Review by: Katherine Aitken, 10 November 2012
'A very factual book which touches on everything in the 20th Century. Unfortunately war is a big part of what shapes our nations - hence the main focus in the book. Very interesting, particularly events that have happened away from UK shores. Good for dipping in and out of and for browsing through at leisure. A good overview in just the right amount of detail. Also suitable for older children to dip in and out of. Recommended.'
