Thought provoking but suggest knowing more than English to read 1 Oct 2011
By Juanhoo Ceeks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An older compilation but it seems to justify some views beyond what others have for timelines. The logic seems to work where others seem to gloss over proofs, so it has value - but I need more sources to be confident in the timeline. There are a number of points where it pulls in direct quotes in French or German so without enough knowledge there you will miss some information.
Its worth it just for the perspective against other works.
