KIRKUS REVIEW

A colossus, running over a thousand pages, representing many countries, many centuries. From point of view of straight readability, Ward Greene's Star Reporters (Random House-1949) was more manageable. This opens with the confession of the witch Walpurga in the 16th century; goes on up through the centuries with many famous incidents and issues,- the storming of the Bastille, the Boston Tea Party, the Hamilton-Burr duel, Waterloo, the charge of the Light Brigade, Abe Lincoln's farewell, the Dreyfus Affair, the murder trial of Harry Thaw, the first World War, the Moscow Trials, the Lindbergh flight, the Sacco and Vanzetti case, World War II, etc. Selected for the dramatic representation of the events rather than the reporters.
