Very good, quick revision

This is an excellent overview for anyone who wants a summary of key events into which they can slot all the details they might have learned previously.

It strikes a good balance between creating a coherent narrative but still including surprisingly comprehensive information for such a short recording.

It's also a very fair price.

More of these "history in an hour" productions would be very welcome!

A Great Review

This was a good review of the Second World War. I think it would be useful for high school students or college students to get a little background knowledge of the war.

A starting point

If anybody wants a beginners guide to the war this is a perfect resource. It covers a vast panoply in a very short introduction. It is no substitute
For a detailed examination but a very good primer.
