4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly rewarding 31 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Format for the Kindle is fair to good. There are few editing errors but there is something ... "odd" about the feel of the layout sometimes. It could just be me.

For a fairly slim volume this really does cover some ground both in time and detail.

The obvious hostage is the depth that can be dedicated to each topic, but as am introduction and taster to the complex mixture of races and peoples that have become what we now know as Germany it's really and excellent work.

The opening chapters do feel a bit like bullet point summaries /school text books but I think that's just that there was a little uncertainty as to what level of information was "adequate". This soon calms down and one feels comfortable, as if chatting about the subject with a friend rather than being lectured at with an exam to complete at the end.

All in all a most enjoyable journey. CW

5.0 out of 5 stars History of Germany... 12 May 2013
By Walter Holzhueter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being of German ancestry and having visited Germany last year, this book was very enlightening. Getting some history on some of the regions I visited and some from the area my family is from was, for me very intriguing. We took a boat trip down the Rhine and saw some of the very places written about in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in visiting the Rhineland.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thousand years in one book 24 Aug 2013
By Burt D. Breedlove - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This starts with the Roman Empire's expansion into northern Europe. Once Rome has fallen, it really skims the top of European events as they involve what became Germany. It is sort of a "Headlines of Medieval Germany." Many individuals and events are referenced by name, but exactly who/what they are is not explained. If you have no background in European history, much of the references will go over your head. But...the book is well enough written and it gives you a definite sense of the times and the socio-political evolution from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance. I am presently at 93% and certainly will finish the book, but it is becoming somewhat tiresome. I want the information, but the writing does not draw me along to the next page. If you want detail, read a multi-volume history; if you just want a general sense of the Middle Ages in Europe (e.g. the Holy Roman Empire, Italy, France, Germany) then this will fill the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting 25 July 2013

The book gives a very fun perspective on the Middle Ages in Germany. The level of detail is really great for the average reader to learn something about Germany but not too detail so that you get really lost in the details. I would recommend it.

Nicely done. Interesting writing style, even for the 1800's.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if old-fashioned 9 Jun 2014

This is classic "great man" history, focusing mainly on emperors and popes. Given my general lack of any knowledge about early medieval Germany, though, it served as an excellent overview. Prof. Henderson is a very engaging writer whose personality shows through. And, given when it was written, there were very few places where he seemed out of touch with modern sensibilities. Of course, there has been an enormous amount of research done since this was written, but as a (free) introduction, it was more than worth the time. My only complaint is that, I suppose following late 19th century usage, he referred to certain cities by their French rather than German names. I was halfway through before I realized that Mayence was Mainz. But then, maybe I'm just slow.
