History is made and defined by landmark events-moments that irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. They have given us: spiritual and political ideas; catastrophic battles and wars; scientific and technological advances; world leaders both influential and monstrous; and cultural works of unparalleled beauty.

What made the experience of listening to The World Was Never the Same: Events That Changed History the most enjoyable?
This course had a great start, he covered a wide range of topics and covered a wide range of countries. The only problem I found with this lecturer was when he started talking about the U.S. He is very patriotic and this comes across clearly in his lectures, particularly when he started talking about events that mainly just affected America whilst claiming it changed the entire world, as in his words "the U.S.A. is the defender of all that is good in the world".
