Still a great read, even though this book was written more than 50 years ago, as long ago as 1965. The book covers the interwar years, from 1914 to 1945 and gives an account of the political and economic, as well as the social and cultural climate of the times. This is a very good history book and I learned a great deal from it. I would recommend this book to others. I hope you find my review helpful.
