Review by davidpwithun
It is what it the title says, of course, and it was everything I expected it to be. The maps and short paragraphs of historical information surrounding the maps are very interesting and detailed. If you have a great deal of interest in the Middle Ages, this book is very helpful for attaining a visual picture of the world you read about.
