Hello /his/ can anyone please recommend a good book about the holy roman empire and the ottomans? I'm about to buy a book called Osman's dream but im not quiet convinced. And im practically lost on what book to read regarding the HRE. thanks
Im starting to read Joaquim Whaley's book, Germany and the Hole Roman Empire. Has pretty good rating and comments. But its pretty expensive, If I can't get anything less expensive I might have to buy that one
There really isn't a good introductory work on the HRE. You're either gonna have to wait for Peter Wilson's book which hasn't come out yet but is sure to be amazing because all of his works are, or you can read James Bryce's history of the HRE from fucking 1871 which is on Project Gutenberg.
Beyond that you're stuck reading Wikipedia or going around reading books that cover partial periods of history and/or certain people.
