John Stoye taught Modern History at Magdalen College, Oxford, until 1984. After retirement he and his wife remained in North Oxford within easy reach of the University libraries. Now in his 90th year, he still vividly remembers walking around the streets of Vienna long ago, trying to grasp the topographical details of the famous siege about which he planned to write a book.Review:
'Worthy of the pen of a Thucydides or a Herodotus ... it is a measure of the fascination of Mr Stoye's subject that one should think of comparing his treatment of it with the work of the greatest historians.' - Times Literary Supplement 'fine historical work ... well worth reading' - Otto von Habsburg, Catholic Herald 'the master of every aspect of his subject' - C.V. Wedgewood, Daily Telegraph
