Publisher's Summary

Children should not just read about history, they should live it. In The Story of Civilization, author Phillip Campbell's historical expertise and story-telling ability make history come alive like never before. 

The Story of Civilization emphasizes presenting world history as a thrilling and compelling narrative. Within each chapter, children will encounter short stories that place them directly in the shoes of historical figures, both famous and ordinary, as they live through legendary battles and invasions, philosophical debates, the discovery of new inventions and sciences, and the exploration of the world.  

Volume III: The Making of the Modern World continues the journey where Volume II left off amidst the Renaissance, quickly diving into the history-altering events of the Reformation. This fracturing of the Church dramatically altered the course of modern Europe and the world at large. This volume brings us through present-day Europe, showing us the effects of two world wars and how the Church responded to these changing times.  

Have you always wanted your children to learn about world history from a Catholic perspective? Here, you’ll have the trusted resource you’ve always wanted. Children will meet great figures like Sts. Pius V, Thomas More, John Vianney, and Margaret Mary Alacoque, as well as powerful leaders like Napoleon and Kings Henry VIII of England and Louis XIV of France.

it was some good information

it could have been a better book I felt like they could have added more details for it to be a 10-hour book but overall story was good I've actually learned a couple of things and the narrator and reader are good sounds

Audio is playing a different volume!

The audio that plays is from Volume II, not Volume III. Hopefully this will get fixed.

good western civilization for kids

This is a good modern history of Europe for children especially in middle school. It presents a side or view not often seen in school text books, but that's great, as often that is biased as well.
As with the others, this is a dramatized recording. I HATE the horrible accents they use for people from different countries (as if they'd be speaking broken English in accents).
also disappointed they decided to separate American and European history in volumes 3 and 4.
still, I value it and my kids love it.
