European History

Wikibooks contributors

Last modified eBook: 2014

This project discovers the history of Modern Europe, starting at the Hundred Years War and ending at the present time.

A chronological perspective of history is attempted within this text. Although this is the case, it is also important to understand patterns within European History, therefore chapters will attempt to cover a breadth of material even though their titles might be that of a specific pattern in history rather than a time period.
