From Britain’s ‘greatest living factual historian’ (Paul Johnson, Evening Standard), Volume II of his global history.

Martin Gilbert is Britain’s leading popular historian. His three-volume History of the Twentieth Century is a complete global narrative history of our century. He is the undisputed master of narrative history with an extraordinary ability to muster detailed facts into rich and compelling prose. Volume I ended with Roosevelt as the newly-elected President of the United States and Hitler appointed as Chancellor of Germany. Volume II takes the story on to the end of 1951, as the world recovers from the devastation of World War II.

‘Martin Gilbert is a phenomenon who arouses envy among less productive professional historians… This is fascinating. I congratulate Gilbert on his good work and look forward to the next two volumes.’ PAUL JOHNSON, Sunday Times. ‘Gilbert is one of Britain’s most eminent historians… 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
