Product description

Review

" Hanson's precise and sparkling narrative captures the cataclysmic urgency of political and religious conflict in early modern Europe. He is obviously a historian with a winning hand." - "The Houston Chronicle" " An exciting narrative. . . . Never before has actual battle been described in such detail and rarely with such flair." - "Los Angeles Times Book Review" " Excellent. . . . Hanson does a good job of conveying the excitement and danger of the individual sea battles." " - Chicago Sun-Times "" Brilliant. . . . Hanson is a meticulous historian and a compelling storyteller. This is one of those rare works of popular history that, like Alan Morehead's "The White Nile" or Barbara Tuchman's "The Guns of August," makes a half-remembered story from school seem both real and relevant." - "Newsday"
