An excellent book throughout. Mr Neillands gives an accurate, unbiased and fittingly detailed account of the war (or series of wars) that is both informative and entertaining. He stays away from the tedious aspects of the war that other authors find themselves muddled in while giving a clear picture of the events. Not on the level of a Jonathan Sumption piece, but altogether one of the best books I've read on the overall conflict. He balances the geo-political facets with the ever popular battle accounts very well, leaving neither subject neglected. I would recomend this book to any novice student on the subject to the mid-range enthusiast. ( )

After reading Crichton's Timeline I conducted some research and happened on this book to further my knowledge of that period. It got the job done and enjoyed it very much. ( )
