Glenn Torrey is an excellent historian who knows his Romanian subject intimately.I have studied the campaigns in this WWI "sideshow " for many years and found much new in this very well-written and engaging account. Particularly valuable are the descriptions of leading participants in these actions in all the armies and Prof Torrey's use of original sources is exemplary. The material is both detailed and readable, an impressive combination. This book will be of interest to both specialists on the Eastern front and the more general reader. I hope, with the centenary looming, there will be more such books on this most exotic front of the First World War ( especcially by this author ).
