In 1541,the crown of Hungary is up for
grabs. King John, seeing that the Austrians were attacking with an
innumerable force, petitions the Turks for assistance. King John
then dies, leaving an infant son. While the Turkish army was en
route, the Hungarians rally their forces, and beat back the
Austrians themselves. Then, just as the Austrians are beating their
final retreat, the main Turkish army arrives at the castle in Buda.
And among their number is the sultan himself. In the years that
follow, the Turks relentlessly invade Hungary, their efforts
culminating in the siege of the castle at Eger. The Turkish army
numbers over 200,000. The Hungarian defenders number only 2,000.
Now it’s your turn to take part in the adventure, and journey to
the land of medieval Hungary.
Battles, battles, battles

This historical novel has a good story line but my female ears became very weary of the extended, detailed, blow-by-blow descriptions of all the fighting. If there had been less of this I would have given this audiobook 4 stars. It will likely appeal greatly to a male audience.

Another masterpiece from B.J.. I'm surprised I've never heard of this classic before, I've started to tell my friends about it. Epic historical storytelling at its finest.
