A unique, readable account of the 20th century for the general reader. Informative and packed with detail, The Greatest Leap offers a clear and readable account of of the history of Britain and the World in the 20th century, one of the most exciting in the history of mankind...

From the 1900s to the 1990s, each chapter covers everything you need to know about the 20th century, from the beginning and end of wars to the births and deaths of important figures and ending on the last new year’s eve of the century. Inspired by narrative historians across the ages, The Greatest Leap is an easy read that will appeal to anyone interested in Britain and the world in the 20th century.

Good overview of 20th century.

The Greatest Leap by Andrew Hatcher is a history book about the growth and decline of civilization over time; it begins in the time period of the 1900s and runs to the end of the 20th century. It also speaks to world events of this period; so it is a book that tells much of the truly amazing story of growth and change during the 20th century.

I like the book; it is history, which is always interesting. But history can at time seem difficult (boring); Hatcher has made this story interesting. The time has been and has seen great change; and the author tells the story well. His seems to be a well written and interesting history; it’s not like a novel but is an easy to read and understand book. Much of the story I lived through; there was no television when I was born.

I have only read to preview; it is a book I hope to read more fully. The main thing this book seems to do is show the great change that happened over the 20th century; changes in travel, communication and much of technology in this time period are truly amazing. It is a good read; I recommend this book.
