This was a great introduction for a newcomer like myself to some of the major periods and events of Danish history. It was at times repetitive, and the author's love for his home country made you question the accuracy of what you were reading. But who wouldn't want to read a history novel written by an enthusiastic historian? Also, if you aren't too familiar with Danish geography, have a map handy. There are many region and city names thrown at you, which can easily confuse an unprepared reader.

Being a student of archaeology and studying under Klavs, reading this seemed a good idea. But the book is clearly not meant for danish students, already familiar with the country's history.
The acchaelogian part were somewhat educating for me, but not much. I even think i have found one or two mistakes in his writing of the modern part of the country's history. While this might not be a problem for non-danish students, it get's somewhat problematic to read at university level.

A broad summary of Danish history with little prehistoric coverage. Written with a zeal for Denmark that borders on the comical.
