Stunning conclusion to an amazing trilogy,
This review is from: Byzantium: The Decline and Fall (Paperback)
I defy you not to read this work in one sitting. Norwich's final hours of Byzantium are tinged with sadness, stupidity and remarkable valour on the part of the final Emperor. This is a beautiful book which leaves the reader's curiosity about this remarkable empire parched - you will want to study more about Byzantium when you finish this trilogy - Norwich's account of the siege of 1453 is amazing - filled with real empathy for the people he has divested a great deal of time he has spent writing about. A stunning conclusion to his 'magnus opus.'
