In 344 lavishly illustrated pages, this history gives a wide overview of the 20th century by combining DK’s beautiful photos, historical media, month-by-month timelines, and brief articles that read like journalism. This fascinating reference also includes special features on the century’s most important events, such as the Russian Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Space Race.
