KIRKUS REVIEW

The sit-down strategies of five historical sieges' ""corporate heroism and determination"" as well as garbage disposal, health and burial problems, food rationing, and political maneuvers. We were hungry for more tantalizing sustenance after the second (Vienna in 1683, with Sobieski and the Poles mincing Turkish menus) despite the generous servings of eyewitness reports. The others: Malta, in 1565 and 1940-42: Gibraltar in 1779-83: Paris in 1870-71. Not exactly everybody's cup of tea--maybe a few of the battle-fatigued.
