5.0 out of 5 stars Overview of a vast subject
Kindle edition has photographs

History in an Hour is a series of books which each deal with a big subject in a short and punchy way to give you the grand overview before you delve into other, far more detailed, books.

As with the other books in the series, there is a quick paced overview before a section of biographies about the main people involved...

If you know little or nothing about the Russian Revolution, this is a good place to start. It took me a lot longer than an hour to read, which suited me as I felt it provided value for money, but be prepared to put 3-4 hours in.

Great summary of the key events, pity about using the Stalin pictures vs the unchanged ones, with Buhkarin and Trotsky in them.

Having studied History up to A level many moons ago; I decided to buy this as a 1st purchase on my new Kindle Fire. It's a very good & simple introduction or refresher for those wanting to read some history without buying large expensive text books. Well worth the 99p.

Good little history book. All the main events and players. If you want a basic grounding before reading a heavier tome then start with these history hours.
