The worst book on the history of Europe .
Written by a historian of "trivia" .To call Mr N Davies a
"scholar" is but an insult to this noble profession.
The gentlemen reminds me of a verbose swindler .
The bias inherent in his book is so startling that he betrays the profession of a historian, but then again writing history to suit one's purpose is not a new idea.
Man, this book as history is bad and I really mean bad.Its originality are in its capsules , which in the overall scheme of history are trivia though I must admit there is some excellence there, but as trivia.
