When Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453, a remarkable era in world history ended. In this volume, Crowley gives a complete and compelling account of the Holy War for Constantinople and the clash of Islam and the West that gave rise to today's jihad.
"Crowley's fascinating account...reads more likely lively fiction...The characters, led by Mohammed II, the young leader of the Ottoman Turks, and Constantine XI, the wearying 57th emperor of a weakening Byzantium, are drawn in great detail from historical source material to bring them to life on the page."
