The Siege and the Fall of Constantinople in 1453 by Marios Philippides Summary

A major study and an essential reference work, this book presents a critical evaluation of the sources on the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. In Part I: The Pen, drawing upon manuscript and printed sources, and looking at the contrasting interpretations in secondary works, the authors reassess the written evidence concerning the event. In Part II, The Sword, the investigation results in new conclusions concerning the layout of the Theodosian Walls, the offensive and defensive strategies of the Byzantines and Turks, including land and sea operations, and an analysis of some of the major engagements.

A Field Guide to Snow by Matthew Sturm Summary

"Over my career I have led more than 30 snow expeditions, taught snow science in the classroom at the undergraduate and graduate level, and run more than a dozen field method classes all over the U.S. In the field with my students, we have worked shoulder-to-shoulder in snow pits measuring the density, grain size, and stratigraphy of the snow pack. In that setting I have tried to teach people how to read in the snow the story of the winter. Most beginners at first have trouble seeing the story: it is all just white and the same. But with time, and a little guidance, the winter world has opened up for them. That is what this book is about: just a little guidance for those who might not get a chance to dig a snow pit with me, but who want to know more about the snow"--

Constantinople by Roger Crowley Summary

'Engagingly fresh and vivid . . . The 21-year-old Mehmet [the Ottoman Sultan] emerges from this book as ruthless but innovative, irascible but versatile and, above all, indefatigable - a worthy successor to Alexander and the Roman emperors he admired as much as any Muslim hero.' Malise Ruthven, Sunday Times In the spring of 1453, the Ottoman Turks advanced on Constantinople in pursuit of an ancient Islamic dream: capturing the thousand-year-old capital of Christian Byzantium. During the siege that followed, a small band of defenders, outnumbered ten to one, confronted the might of the Ottoman army in an epic contest fought on land, sea and underground. 'In this account of the 1453 siege, written in crackling prose by former Istanbul resident Roger Crowley - his first book and not, I hope, his last - we are treated to narrative history at its most enthralling.' Christopher Silvester, Daily Express 'A vivid and readable account of the siege . . . [And] an excellent traveller's guide to how and why Istanbul became a Muslim city.' Philip Mansel Guardian
