really liked it

I finished this monster last night and I have learned a lot about this very busy man. What an incredible life he led. The book had me reaching for my dictionary more often than I'd care to reveal, but in the process I was exposed to a lot of new concepts that don't appear in modern day life.

I feel richer about history having read this book. It never got boring, but some parts (especially the detailed battle descriptions) were a bit too dense. I would read another book by this author, but not right away. Something lighter like The Lord of the Rings, perhaps!
