Format: Hardcover
This book is packed with information. Step-by-step it charters the main events, and the not-so-main events, of the last century. I consider it to be a great reference book. The only down side is that it has an American slant to it. Some major British events are relegated to the small print, e.g, some of the UK election results and England's world cup win in 66.

Millennium 20th Century Day by Day 22 Dec 1999
By Sharri K., Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent resource book. It will provide one with endless material for research projects. Its great for chronologing events for someone's birthday or anniversary. It is also great for teachers and triva buffs.
There is data for each day with special highlights for each month. A great conversation piece for your coffee table.

Five-star History 8 May 2001
By Sara Westhead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book that summarized World history during the 20th century and this is the one I chose to buy. I was more than happy with my copy. It is easy to look up specific events, and great for general browsing. I only had two complaints - one, that there was MORE detail in it (although that would have been very hard for a single volume!), and two, it didn't come with the CD that was made to go with it.

Bloody Marvelous! 10 Feb 2000
By Cleo Fagin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cor, blimey! You won't be disappointed with this one. So many pages of so many stories, taken from the headlines as they were that day. It's almost like being there, be it 15, or 50 years ago. If you want to see how the print media saw the headlines as they were written then, this is the book for you.

Buy this book!!! 29 Mar 2002
By Tony Rush - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What can I say? The book is an incredible collection of every notable historical event in the last 100 years.
The BEST part, to me, is the "chain reference" feature. When you get to the bottom of an article (about, say, the completion of the Hindenburg), there is a small date in italics at the end which points you to the next article concerning the Hindenburg. This is OUTSTANDING for following a chain of events through history.
GREAT reading for knowledge or leisure!
