Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A critical study of the fifty-year conflict between Islam and Chistianity for control of the Mediterranean discusses the decisive sixteenth-century battles at Malta and Lepanto that permanently ended Muslim expansion in the region and looks at the roles played by Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, pirate Hayrettin Barbarossa, Pope Pius V, and General Don John of Austria. Simultaneous.

Review:
"[T] he merits of Crowley's book are those of narrative skill and balanced empathies. The changing pageant of tactics and weaponry, the pendulum of power and morale, make for compulsive reading."

Colin Thubron, New York Review of Books, 04/09/2009
