An ideal way of finding, provided it is read carefully, historical information which does not seem to be available in the official archives.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am pleased to say, 23 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not a lightweight bedtime read. However, although it gives a detailed account it does not go overboard, I am pleased to say, when telling of atrocities especially against civilians, it recounts the necessary facts and leaves it at that. My only problem with it was trying to follow where the forces of both sides where at any given time and towards the end of the Fall this became even more difficult but probably that is more my fault than the authors. All in all a very good book. I enjoyed it immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard work but worth it., 19 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent well researched book. It relies on facts not waffle. It is not an easy read but then a serious subject like this must inevitably require its reader to put in great effort and concentration (Well, I found it hard work. Perhaps others will not)
Well worth the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Insubstantial. Disappointed., 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am more than halfway through this book and it still has not answered to my satisfaction the basic questions of who, what and when regarding the 'sea people'. Am beginning to lose interest. Mostly speculation so far.

This is an excellent book. It will be of real practical use to me on my OU module re the Renaissance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Defeated, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had the impression (perhaps I'm wrong) that it was long on waffle and short on facts. Usually I will not let a book defeat me but this one did because I couldn't finish it. Perhaps someone in my local charity shop will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 16 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book presents an ideal opportunity to see paintings which have remained out of the public eye for many years. It feature some of the best impressionist masterpieces ever produced. Their history is almost as exciting as the paintings themselves. The paintings which 'came out from the cold'! A great book; worth every penny.
