History live saver
on 7 May 2010
Honestly, this book is brilliant. It is well researched and written clearly making this complex topic accessible and understandable to all levels from GCSE upwards.
The inclusion of charts and tables allows the readers to really get to grips with the trends of the period, and the images and maps included are well suited to the topics covered.
This book was brilliant in my exams, a treu life saver. The author, in addition to being an incredible author and historian, is a brilliant and dedicated teacher. This I speak from experience, as he has succeeded in making history accessible, enjoyable, and fun, as well as giving us all guaranteed A in our exams. This brilliance has come across in this work as well as his two others (so far) and I would recommend this book to anyone studying Russian history, and more widely to anyone who enjoys history.
We love you Andy!
