I read this book after reading Ken Follett's - Fall of Giants - Historical fiction. Barbara Tuchman did an amazing amount of research. I must confess that it was a bit too much detail for me at times. If in another life, I would come back as a history teacher, it would be great to create a series of lectures using this book as my text. I can already see myself creating diagrams and unraveling the personalites of the commanders. It took me forever to read. I had to renew it once. I cannot remember ever before having to renew a book from the library! I'd give it 5 * for content, but 3 * to keep me on track.
