A good read, not too dry. The only criticism that I have is off the quotes in old French, with no translation.,

Henry IV, the savior of France, now almost forgotten. An excellent well written history of a fascinating man. 4 Nov. 2013
By James S. Evidon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It sets forth the history of the war between the Huguenots and the Catholics in a concise and interesting book. I was always interested in this almost forgotten French king who saved France from itself and wanted to know more about him. This book did the job for me.It is well written, well paced and interesting.
