The book gives a brief digest of an important time in Syrian history, and of a major element in the incredible tangle that is Middle Eastern history. However its author seems to have only a passing acquaintance with English syntax. Moreover, at one point he places Gallipoli on the Black Sea! A trivial mistake, although it implies that the Allies got through the Bosphorus, but it is disconcerting.
