    1. It gives a really detailed timeline of the events that happened. For me, the maps could have been a little clearer and maybe even more detailed in explaining the events in the text.

    2. A decent but not great encapsulation of a major turning point in the Middle East. It covers the details, but I felt it could do a better job of integrating those details into a whole.
