"Besser kann man es nicht machen [it couldn't be done better]" - Peter Blickle, Historische Zeitschrift

"It has hardly ever been told better" - Alec Ryrie, English Historical Review

"This is history as it should be written: meticulous, provocative and intelligent. By studying the past for its own sake, and on its own terms, it also illuminates the present and the future" - William Whyte, Church Times
