In the words of those who were there, from the earliest times to the present day, here are the most outstanding events of human history in a unique panoramic collection. Great moments in history, war and politics, art and literature, sport and exploration are collected in this third edition of a hugely successful volume. The epic events include 9/11, the exploration of Mars and the Asian Tsunami, the Gunpowder Plot and the discovery of America, the eruption of Vesuvius, the death of Alexander and Sennacherib sacking Babylon. All compiled from memoirs, diaries, letters, journalistic reports and other first-hand documents.
