Europe, A History, by Norman Davies.

After literally years of piecemeal reading, I’ve finally finished this history. `From the ice age to the atomic age’ is the best description I’ve read of its coverage.

The writing style is interesting, a little dry in the main text, but very human in the tables which litter each chapter.

It’s the sort of book that I’ll have to read a few times over my life to truly appreciate.
