Good book about 20th C. European history?

Jump to last reply

We watched a good film about Ceaucescu's Romania the other night, had to admit how little we know about the past hundred years of European history, even the big chunk when we were on the other side of the water.

Does anyone have a favorite book for an overview of that period? Something not too deeply academic would be great, like along the general lines of M. Carter's "George, Nicholas and Wilhelm." Or maybe two or three such books for a fuller picture?
