Very thorough, but hard to get through. I compared the JM Roberts History of Europe with the Norman Davies Europe: A History(this one), and although the Davies was more enjoyable overall due to his "capsules" as he calls them, of random contemporaneous information, the style was too messy to get through and the book ended up being HUGE because of all the unncessary information. I recommend the Roberts over the Davies simply due to the accessibility of the information; I couldn't find a capsule index or any type of cross-referencing material for the capsules at all.
