So far it seems decent. Lots of political coverage, strategy, operations and tactical battles. The actors are also bought up; sovereigns, generals, diplomats and other policy makers. A lot of backstory about the Crimean War and the developments in Russia, France and Turkey. The descriptions of the campaigns are pretty good though sometimes I wish there was more detail. A lot of the maps and information appears to be from some older English language books though which were compiled together to form the narrative in this book. Even if it wasn't an excellent book it is still a lot of information about an event which I've never read anything about. At hundreds of pages and it still only cost like $4 on Amazon Kindle.
That sounds like a really good read. I'm going to have to keep my eye out for a copy.
