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.

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
