During the siege that followed, a small band of badly organised defenders, outnumbered ten to one, confronted the might of the Ottoman army in a bitter contest fought on land, sea and underground, and directed by two remarkable men - Sultan Mehmet II and the Emperor Constantine XI. 'Constantinople' is narrative history at its very best: an intense, extraordinary tale of courage and cruelty, technological ingenuity, endurance and luck." - 400 005754
