Series Review: Moments in History
"This series explains the before, during, and after of seminal events of the 20th century in a clear, unbiased manner. The authors walk the fine line between certainty and moral ambiguity, knowing when to pass judgment and when to leave topics open for debate...Though there is no shortage of books on these topics, the combination of information and readability makes these titles good choices."
