    If history is your cup of tea, you will enjoy this book, as I did. There is a lot of detail here, but it is the detail that makes it interesting rather than dry. Tabulating battles, winners, and losers would be a way to shorten this long book. Doing so would rob it of its charm. Reading the detail brings one almost within touching distance of Mustafa and LaVallette. I found it engaging and I enjoyed it to the end.
