Highly recommended, and also a remarkably timely read: there are many parallels of note here with the current deterioration in the West's relationship with Russia.
A final note: I would strongly recommend the paperback over the kindle version. Unless you're already well versed in the geography of the region, you'll find yourself regularly flicking back to the provided maps, sometimes several times a page. I would not want to have attempted this with a Kindle.
After reading this book I believe you will have a totally new look at the news you watch and read and realise, it is just a game that never ends and is the same today as it was centuries ago.
My fear is, we will never change,
Oh! Quick delivery from the seller and a very fair price. Thank you.
