1848 by Mike Rapport

1848

Year of Revolution proclaims the cover and it certainly was – breaking out all over Europe. This book does a great job of explaining how they were all linked and how they were all different at the same time. The creation, confusion, counter-revolution and aftermath are all covered in great detail. Having been to many of the cities mentioned in the book it was especially nice to try and imagine what it must have been like to have been there at the time (although perhaps watching from a safe distance!)
