historically interesting. there is more than one story here. it's about the invasion by the turks corruption in vlad's local government that led to his brutal murder. the author's are fair i believe. vlad was no more brutal than his contemporaries. so effecient at warefare was vlad, he fought the invading turks to a draw when they invaded his part of europe. fire must be met with worse fire, vlad thought. and as we in america are quickly learning today, he was right.

Radu R. Florescu and Raymond T. McNally are the two most esteemed authorities on Vlad The Impaler. Most of what is known about the man is due to their research. This book reflects that. He was more than the inspiration for Dracula, and a bloodthirsty tyrant. The book will take you in to his times for a thorough examination of the events and people around him. A great read for a history loving person.

The book was really informative and helped shed light on the historical figure, the part about Richard the III was a bit off, since there is no proof that he killed his nephews, but all around a good book.

I think this book is great. Its one of those really good books on an actual historical figure on which it is so hard to find information on becuase of the Fictional Vampire Dracula. If you ask me the real Vlad Tepes was far more interesting and cruel than his undead counterpart.

This book was interesting, but extremely slow. And I have to question the validity of the book since the co-authors claim that Richard III killed his two 'cousins,' Edward 'VI' and Richard in the Tower of London. Richard III may have killed his two NEPHEWS, Edward 'V' and Richard.
