What is the scene or incident in European history that you would like to have witnessed--and why?This is the question that the editors posed to twenty superb historians who wrote a personal essay in response. The result is this engrossing book, a worthy sequel to the acclaimed volume on American history, I Wish I'd Been There, The death of Alexander the Great and the German surrender ending WWII are among the key events that are re-created and illuminated by such scholars as Tom Holland, William McNeill, Katherine Duncan-Jones, Richard Pipes, Freeman Dyson, and Margaret MacMillan. WITH ALEXANDER, NAPOLEON, AND PICASSO is a marvelous idea, wonderfully and imaginatively executed. The result is an historical pageant of characters and events that will delight all readers of history.
