Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Medieval military historian David Nicolle describes the final decline of the Byzantine Empire and the expansion of the Ottoman Empire, which led to the momentous siege and fall of Constantinople in 1453. But he begins a century earlier, when a tiny Ottoman force crossed into Europe to help the Byzantine Emperor in a civil war; and he provides the military, political, cultural and personal backgrounds of the winners and losers and the 'outsiders' drawn into these dramatic events.
