Very interesting book. Narrative is very fast paced that it feels like you are reading a historical novel not a history book.

Descriptions of siege, casualties on both sides, heavy bombardment and overall destruction are very vivid.

Highly recommended for military (and general) history buffs.

Excellent. Historically accurate and narratively enthralling, this book inspires me to courage and fortitude in defense of my faith. Inspiring... is the perfect descriptor. I would definitely recommend this to myself to read it again.

Saul of Tarsus gets the biographical treatment here.

Not being religious I don’t have a great deal of knowledge about Saul/Paul so I don’t know if Paul the Traveller fills in any gaps on his life and beliefs but I walked away knowing a bit more about Paul the Apostle than I did before so that’s something.… (mere)
