The Siege of Vienna
The Siege of Vienna
by John Stoye
Book Description: The siege of Vienna in 1683 was the last major threat to the West from Islam and established the balance of power in Eastern Europe and the Balkans down to the end of World War I. Rivalry over control of Hungary caused the Ottoman Turks to advance on the Austrian capital at Vienna, determined to knock out their main rival in the region once and for all. The magnitude of the threat forced the previously feuding Austrians, Poles and Germans to make common cause. 

The prompt arrival of European reinforcements and Turkish difficulties in transporting siege artillery so far form their homeland contributed to the Western victory. The European powers soon fell out with each other, but the threat to Western civilization was ended and the Ottoman Empire began its long downward spiral to its final defeat in World War I. 

This gripping narrative has been compared to the finest works of European history.
