This is a fantastic little book! Everything in it is something you learn in school, but often as adults we forget. It was nice to read through and refresh my mind with this useful information.
It has every thing from presidents and prime ministers, to royalty and their reign. From every war to every turning point in history. Plus a lot of other useful things too.
A great gift for students who need a bit of help in history, or for an adult who loves it.
