In my opinion, the history of the 20th century is the most crucial to learn, because that has had the greatest influence on our lives as we know them today. Who is that guy on the dime and why is he there? Why are Nazis so hated, and where did they come from? Why do we fear communism? These, and many many more questions are answered in this series. From doughboys to Flash Gordon, from the Lone Ranger to JFK, this series covers it all (up to the year 1970). The one regrettable thing is that Time/Life didn't continue the series with volumes for the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, but this is a very good start.
Invaluable not only for home reading, but I think also for home-schooling. Highly recommended for all, kids and adults alike.
