I loved learning of the origins of Islamic fundamentalist, the foundations of al Qaeda andt the lead up to 9/11 in this exhaustively researched book. The author has crafted a fascinating and engaging account. His narration of his own work was as good as any voice talent available on Audible.

An incredible history of 20th Century conflict

At 34 and a half hours, this book requires commitment but it will be amply rewarded through the author's forensic analysis of the major conflicts of the 20th century. Appropriately, emphasis is given to the World Wars however the perspectives of both causes and issues are examined in ways not found in many other books on the subject. The narrator's tone and speed gave gravitas to the subject matter but was never condescending or overplayed. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a serious examination of history's bloodiest century.
