I enjoyed the narrative and I thought that the author did a good job of collecting facts and weaving them into a story. The writing was good and made for easy reading.
The weakness of the book was that it was presented completely from a European perspective and mind set. The author seemingly had no insight into the eastern culture. For example, his description of the interplay between the women was colorless and showed no understanding of the dynamic.
I still recommend that anyone with an interest in history should read this book. It describes many events that have not been treated in one volume. It is interesting and absorbing.
