doesn't this campaing diminishes history instead of embracing it? considering of-course that history in brief does not mean that history it's simple.

I agree, actually.

They belittle events such as kennedy assassination and 9/11 a little by making it brief.

Its as if they said, 'and two planes flew into some buildings, lots of people died, er, flames, war etc. etc., anyway moving on.'

A bit shallow

I disagree. the history, as people often study it, is a bunch of facts. I guess, HistoryFiles just delivers the highlights of every event.
and you, only pointing kennedy and the twin towers, are actually diminishing(?) the other historical events… where r u from? ;)

No I wasn't diminishing the others, I just didn't know what they were (which I am guessing is why you wantto know where I am from)

Not that it is relevant in anyway, but I am from Scotland.

And as you say, 'delivers the highlights' of each event, it makes it sounds like a top ten; cheapens it.

If an event was so big and so memorable that a few sqiggles on a piece of paper is recognized by everyone, doesn't that honour the moment? The 9-11 one did catch me off guard, but it evokes memories and the emotions that go with them. Isn't that what ads are supposed to do...? Serious question.

In this business, the way you say something is as important as the message you trying to say.

The graphic solution for this pieces implies a disdain of childish proportions towards historical situations (that in fact triggered other historical situations).

This is contradictory to a product that is (apparently) supposed to cherish the heritage of history.... by guarding it.

History in brief, should be more about telling a long story in short (length) rather than not telling the hole story. and the simplicity of those lines implies precisely that.

In any case, History in brief is a ..... site? ....a book? .....a TV show? and is supposed to be good because.... doesn't bother in explaining who kennedy was or what he did?

HIstory in brief okay - but these look like kids' drawings
