    1. یک.نوع فرار وقایع از هم و جدا افتادگی و دقیقا عین یک پازل پرداخته شده به تاریخ اروپا ، نویسنده ففط نوشته و نوشته به طور کاملا پراکنده و افکار مشوش خود را به قلم آورده ،حالا هر واقعه ای هر جایی از کتاب به ذهنش رسیده همونجا ثبت شده ، هیچ نظمي نداره و از هيچ قانونی پیروی نمی کنه . اصل [...]

    2. This is an old favourite, and perhaps the only reason behind me dropping a star is its "not up-to-date" nature. I had used this book as a primer-cum-refernce for European history, while preparing for the Civil Services exam, and still have fond memories of its dense no-nonsense prose, punctuated by Maps, and reassuringly substantial feel, that no matter what you might be looking for, ther would be some idea here that may guide you. Big, bold, and brave: that's how I would like to remember this v [...]

    3. One of the best books on Modern European History. It focuses more on concepts than events. Thompson's prose is also commendable and that makes reading this mammoth of a book a pleasant experience for history enthusiasts and keen students of the subject.

    4. A book of a lifetime Perfect combination of sound, well-researched, lucidly articulated academic information and with high speed thrill and suspense of any mystery thriller novel. Wish there were more such history books.

    5. ویژگی منحصر بفردی که حداقل تا بحال من زیاد ندیدم ارجاعات کتاب به مطالبی از خودشه، نه این که با این ارجاع مطلبی رو تائید کنه بلکه فقط باعث پیوستگی بیشتر مطالب میشه.

    6. An extremely coherent and readable review of the history of Europe. Although the latter part is a bit dated now, it was published in 1966, the material contained is comprehensive and provides a very good overview of the major post war developments. In short, this is a very good presentation of a significant period in the history of the European continent, and there is much to commend it. The volume is lavishly illustrated with maps and charts, and it contains and extensive categorised bibliograp [...]

    7. Broad in its scope and fascinating in its depths, Thomson's study of the changes in Europe since the fall of Napoleon in 1815, is an interesting read. However his style is perhaps too much akin to a textbook, leaving the reader fatigued with dates. Although this makes it a great reference book.
