Praise

“Hanson’s precise and sparkling narrative captures the cataclysmic urgency of political and religious conflict in early modern Europe. He is obviously a historian with a winning hand.”–The Houston Chronicle

“An exciting narrative. . . . Never before has actual battle been described in such detail and rarely with such flair.”–Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Excellent. . . . Hanson does a good job of conveying the excitement and danger of the individual sea battles." –Chicago Sun-Times

“Brilliant. . . . Hanson is a meticulous historian and a compelling storyteller. This is one of those rare works of popular history that, like Alan Morehead’s The White Nile or Barbara Tuchman’s The Guns of August, makes a half-remembered story from school seem both real and relevant.”–Newsday
