That's pretty amazing. I cannot imagine how long it must have taken to put it together.

On another note, I feel it's so much easier to learn about things (like history) using the resources available to us with modern technology. If only I'd had access to stuff like this when I was in school!

I think this is a video I'll bookmark. My daughter will undoubtedly study WW2 sometime in the near future.

I remember one of these for the Near East that showed the various political shifts in the last few thousand years, including the Mongol Empire. I'll have to dig that up.
