These volumes are clearly written and interesting enough for browsers as well as report writers. Maps, full-color and black-and-white photos, and reproductions of manuscripts contribute to the attractive format and make the subject matter come alive. Both titles are well organized and give a clear understanding of the historical impact of these events. The well-documented sources add to the volumes' credibility. The interesting and well-chosen photos and informational inserts serve to make these books well rounded and accessible.
