    One thought on “Warfare, State and Society on the Black Sea Steppe, 1500-1700”

    1. A very to the point bare bones study of a fascinating topic. Well researched, thoroughly sourced, and unique for its topic focus in the English language. Lots of recruitment details (which I found less fascinating) but also strategy and campaigning (which was much more interesting to me). You wont get this much detail in English on the operations of the Crimean Tatars either, so thats a plus.
