A History of the Twentieth Century Reviews


'Martin Gilbert is the most prodigious author of our time... He is a phenomenon who arouses envy among less productive professional historians... He has a fine eye for a telling passage and a memorable detail... This is a fascinating treatment... I congratulate Gilbert on his good work and look forward to the next two volumes.' Paul Johnson, Sunday Times 'Sir Martin Gilbert is one of Britain's most eminent historians and prolific authors... His knowledge and scholarship make him in many ways ideally suited to write a history of our century and great insights emerge.' John Ramsden, Financial Times 'There can be few other contemporary historians who would be capable of such a work calling for so much knowledge and so resolute a control of a flood of disparate material.' Philip Ziegler, Literary Review 'Gilbert has a fine eye for ironic detail.' Orlando Figes, Sunday Telegraph
