I live in the UK and bought the calendar for my Dad who's a bit of a history buff. It looked really promising but all of the events are American. My birthday, for example is 'the birth of Dick Van Dyke'. Hardly a major historical event for the rest of the world. Perhaps the capture of Saddam Hussein would have been more appropriate? (the same date)
Another event was Crazy Horse's surrender. The calendar's account makes the attack on his home camp sound like a fairly matched military battle, rather than the slaughter of non-fighting peoples including women and children by heavy weaponry. Marilyn Monroe's first wedding also features, which affected nobody.

In conclusion, the calendar could be better researched and less American. Not that my review matters, as I doubt anyone will be considering purchasing a 2013 calendar now.

2013 History: Boxed calendar 3 Feb 2013
By Barbara A. Vinocur - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A bit disappointed.....all black and white print, no photos or color. It's interesting and they included a variety of historical events throughout the ages, but I don't think I will order one again.
USA holidays are now in History? 29 April 2013
By Phyllis - Published on Amazon.com

Everyone tries to be so politically correct that our currect calendars rarely ever reflect what was once the norm. This one has all the USA Holidays(I hope). This is a History Lesson?
Perfect for the History (channel) nut. 25 Feb 2013
By matthew valentine - Published on Amazon.com

My wife is a history and history channel nut. She loves the fact a day type calendars and this one fit the bill. It's standard 1-a-day style for a desktop calendar with the rip-off sheets. I'll be looking for this, again at Christmas time, it was a winner!

Nothing wrong with the calender. It just did not work on my desk. I prefer the date on the bottom.
