'People of the Book is set in the Thirty Years' War, which began and still shapes our present system of world order. David Stacton's incomparable prose reveals how the treatises of scholars and the tactics of commanders so rarely comprehend the vagaries of the human condition. A book to put on the shelf with Thucydides' Peloponnesian War and Tolstoy's War and Peace.' Professor Charles Hill (author of Grand Strategies: Literature, Statecraft, and World Order) 'A troubling and fantastic book... Stacton sets up a duel plot. One follows the fortunes of the Swedish King Gustavus Adolphus, the other recounts the fate of an orphaned boy and his little sister who try to make their way across Germany from their ruined home to refuge with an imagined uncle.' Life '[An] extraordinary evocation of the whole spiritual climate of the time; the very vapours of Teutonic mists seem to rise from its pages.' Frederic Raphael, Sunday Times
