KIRKUS REVIEW

From mythology to Mussolini, in a highspotting of ""pivotal episodes"" in 2500 years of Mediterranesh history. A man immersed in his subject tells with absorbed intensity of years of strife, of adventure, of peoples, of the passing show, making of it background material interesting for the current theatre of war. He skims the early Greek and Roman wars, the Northern invasions, the Crusades, the Balkan troubles, American intervention, and the free for all of the European nations, building up to the importance of Africa, of the Straits, of the Canal, of the Mediterranean today.
