An epic story, great detail, and thoroughly researched. I don't know if many of you are the same but when dry historical detail is delved too much into it takes from the momentous experience of the devastation of the siege, but the writer tries to make a balance. However, this is a historical and not a literary work, and in its field seems to perform well.
