I gave this book a neutral 3 stars because I found the book to be unreadable. Perhaps this is shame on me, but Taylor goes into so much detail with regard to the politics of Austria and the Austro-Hungarian Empire that I totally lost what is going on. If you are well grounded in this area, it may be a good read for you. Did not work at all for me.
