Review Text

This approach to history is a largely pictorial look at thirteen 'great events that changed the world'. Included in these are the Great Pyramid; the Roman Empire; the Fall of the Aztecs; the Mughul Dynasty; Revolutions in America, France and Russia, and the two World Wars. The text is in the form of extended captions, but the minutely detailed pictures convey the drama in panoramic style. (9+) (Kirkus UK)show more
