10 Eventful Years is the title of the 1947 Encyclopædia Britannica range of books, spanning ten years. They chart, as the introductory title states, "events of the years preceding, including and following World War II". The books were commissioned and edited by Walter Yust, the then editor of the Encyclopædia Britannica.

It was published by E.B. Inc (incorporating Chicago, London & Toronto) and the University of Chicago in 1947, and consists of four volumes spanning the whole 10 years and segregating history into the normal A-Z style.[2] The book is a combination of writing and black-and-white photographs, with a colour image at the beginning of each book.
