Book - 2006

Stephen O'Shea writes books in which he becomes part of the places where his history happened. His eye and his acute sense of place have produced great writing. This history is built around seven battles. He begins with Yarmuk, in 636, and the early conflicts of Islam, and ends with the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the defence of Malta in 1565. Sea of Faith is beguiling even when the power of the writing sometimes overwhelms the subject. Others have journeyed through this past, and some of the same places. But O'Shea does it better, and more memorably.
