I'm struggling not to add this to the DNF pile. I find my mind wandering as I listen. Maybe it just isn't s good choice for a multi-tasking listen. Maybe I should start again with a clear mind. The topic is interesting and the book is not poorly written. The fall of the Ottoman Empire had such an effect on the history of the 20th century that I really should know more about it but I struggle. However, I am determined not to be defeated on this one. I chose it and I WILL get through it--even if there is a lot of military history that is boring me to distraction.
