5.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable read, 26. März 2014
There isn't much I can say about this book except that it is a gripping recount. Joel Rosenburg not only developed the characters so well, he did a fascinating job of bringing out their emotions and thoughts and of describing their actions in a way that made it easy for the reader to picture the time and the situations of the characters in the book. His handling of details is perfect, sparing the reader. Not only does he write in a fluid manner, he knows his subject very well. I never felt like putting the book aside during the read. Its captures so much in its scope like stories such as Disciples of Fortune , and The Great Escape. Every chapter was enjoyed.

The way the real and the mythical are blended together in this story written by its… Mehr dazu

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful book, 27. Januar 2014
An interesting book, which tries to explain the emergence of western civilization as the dominant culture in our times. Revealing though it is; it failed to explain a lot that defied the views postulated. A great read though. Union Moujik, Collapse, The Shades of Fire, The Third Chimpanzee are other interesting books to read.
