The narative style can be grating at times, but the underlying story is well told and it is fascinating. There is a bit too much emphasis on flawed historical figures that in the end don't factor into the story. The ending is strong, highlighting the severity of the problem and the inadequacy of our preparations.

How do you hold your audience captive for 40+ hours? Just be brilliant the entire time. Historically accurate, with vivid characters, and a well paced plot, this story is a timeless classic.
There is an exciting revenge tale here; several minutes of one, at least. There's also several hours of a historical drama featuring Christ, the 3 wise men, and Ben Hur as an militant 13th apostle. It's not what I expected and not for a contemporary audience.
