This was quite a trio of books, full of political intrigue, action, and even a little romance which wasn't really romance, told from the military physician/amateur historian who is a bit of a cynic with a kind heart. ( )

I've read the first two books in Serbian, but the translation was discontinued over a decade ago.
Looking forward to reading it again, this time in English.
