Anmeldelser

«Well-balanced, readable and timely account of the 1683 siege»

Jay Dixon, Historical Novels Review

«Impressively researched... he has a forensic grasp of the terrain and the tactics, produces excellent miniatures of the frontline generals and deploys extraordinary eyewitness accounts with great skill... Wheatcroft has done us all a service by bringing another part of the story of Ottoman-European interaction to the attention of English-speaking readers»

Literary Review

«The book gives a fine account of the siege itself... thoughtful and thought-provoking, as well as being a cracking good story»

Sunday Telegraph

«It is tremendous stuff, a masterpiece of historical writing»

Daily Telegraph

«Wheatcroft captures the sweep of great events in this riveting book. He also nails historical myths that still resonate to this day»

Simon Shaw, Daily Mail
