This review is from: City of Fortune: How Venice Won and Lost a Naval Empire (Hardcover)
This is the first Roger Crowley book that I have read. I bought the book because I am an unashamed Venetophile. The book is absolutely brilliant - as readable and well written as it is meticulously researched. A 'must' for every lover of Venice and its history.
