    Graham says: "Rousing"
    "Getting to know the man"
    Overall

    The history of Hitler's activity and the start of WWII were a bonus in this great personal history of Churchill. The sequence and details of Winston Churchill were just right, no too sweeping or too detailed, and nice exposure to Parliment, his speeches and oneliners.

    Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill were the greatest leaders of "the Greatest Generation." Jon Meacham explores the fascinating relationship between the two men who piloted the free world to victory in World War II. It was a crucial friendship, and a unique one: a president and a prime minister spending enormous amounts of time together and exchanging nearly two thousand messages.

    Ronald Hull says: "Franklin and Winston Review"
    "Great glimpses and play-by-play"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this, and how it brings these big historical decisions, events and meetings down to very personal experiences.

    In this fascinating work, winner of the Wolfson Prize for History Mark Mazower uncovers the history of the Balkans with detail and clarity. He explores the reasons for current conflicts and examines the Balkans as a religious, cultural, and economic melting pot for Europe and Asia. Through Robert O'Keefe's articulate narration, listeners will be absorbed by this rich world.

    David says: "Thorough History..."
    "Ther's got to be an easier way"
    Overall

    Jumping around in themes and chronology, I had a hard time following this one. Seems to assume you know quite a lot about European history already, so dont start learinng the region with this one.,,and a strange theme for the last chapter to end on.

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    Patrick says: "Facinating, Scary and Repetitive"
    "Useful way to see whats happening"
    Overall

    Very interesting, with lots of examples to highlighting the smaller, flatter worls. It is not the other side of the world anymore. A little repetitive at times,seeming to wish to include/credit evryone who opend their doors to his inquiry, but enjoyable .Felt like I was sitting college classroom with one of my dynamic professors.
