1 review about Constantinople : The Last Great Siege 1453

A real-life Lord of the Rings

+5
Roger Crowley's 1453: The Holy War for Constantinople and the Clash of Islam and the West reads like a real-life The Lord of the Rings. It's action-packed and brimming with detail about the city and battle. By the middle of the novel, we get almost day-by-day blows of the fighting, as if written by a war correspondent who had witnessed the scenes. Crowley did a great service in making such a readable account of a crucial event in history. Hopefully, his engaging account will attract even readers who don't normally both with history. I would highly recommend this to anybody interested in history, or even adventure novels! (trust me, it's almost as good as Lord of the Rings).
