An Interesting Read
By dberczel July 30, 2015
I have many Osprey titles in my collection. This volume is good, but not the best in my opinion. The book's most valuable aspect are the three full-page color plates of Turkish, Austrian, and Polish soldiers in action, accompanied by a thorough description of the figures illustrated. As a wargamer and military miniature painter, I found these plates to be quite inspirational. The textual description of the campaign is well-written and a pleasure to read, but I found the accompanying maps to be somewhat disappointing. I was unable to locate several place-names mentioned in the text on the maps. The 38 period illustrations included were interesting, but about half of them were so small they were difficult to appreciate without the use of a magnifying glass. Overall, I am glad I purchased this book, but it has its flaws: little information on orders of battle, not much detail on Tartar forces engaged, and no notes to assist wargamers recreate the battle, as found in many other Osprey Campaign titles. Still though, it has helped me in my study and understanding of Ottoman of military forces.
