    Story
    (125)

    In 1683, an Ottoman army that stretched from horizon to horizon set out to seize the "Golden Apple", as Turks referred to Vienna. The ensuing siege pitted battle-hardened Janissaries wielding 17th-century grenades against Habsburg armies, widely feared for their savagery. The walls of Vienna bristled with guns as the besieging Ottoman host launched bombs, fired cannons, and showered the populace with arrows during the battle for Christianity's bulwark.

    Shaun says: "Excellent work"
    "Sad that history has become so politicaly correct"
    Overall

    The author starts off by saying well we can ignore the Clash of Civilations analysis of the Habsburgs, Ottoman conflict, and why is that? Much of the book seemed to be nothing more than a politcially correct attempt to white wash the well deserved fear that the Ottomas created in the west.
