5.0 out of 5 stars At long last!, 10 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Defeat in Detail: The Ottoman Army in the Balkans, 1912-1913 (Hardcover)
This title is long overdue in my opinion, with Lt. Col. Erickson demonstrating a masterful handling of a complicated and little understood subject.
'Defeat in Detail' admirably illustrates, in impressive minutiae, the trials and tribulations of the Ottoman Army of the period 1877 - 1913 during the Balkan conflicts. The work is further supported by a comprehensive bibliography with fascinating appendices and copious tactical maps etc.
My only 'niggle' being the sometimes poor translation of German works and a few typos (also German). Other than that, a 'must buy' book for military students everywhere and very reasonably priced; for anyone with only a passing interest of the subject then expensive and content probably much too 'dry'.
