Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Danubia: A Personal History of Habsburg Europe (Hardcover)
Having enjoyed his "germania" very much i was looking forward greatly to this book, its a sort of esoteric ramble through geography, history and culture - if you are looking for a definative history of the Austro-Hungarians this isnt it- but its filled with anecdotes, observations and stories that really bring the whole subject to life. It also has some really funny bits that had me laughing immoderately on various forms of public transport. Delightful!
