3.0 out of 5 stars
The book all history students love to hate, 31 Jan. 2001
This book is very deceptive. It looks brief, concise and comprehensible. However, it is a wolf in sheep's clothing! Gregory writes in his own uniquely convoluted style and waffles like a champion. However, the content was exactly the stuff i needed for my degree programme so no complaints there. My issue is with the author who has long since passed, and I'm not about to start bashing the dead. Therefore, I have awarded three stars purely for the books use as an historical, documentary source. The movie rights are still going for this beauty of a thriller!
