This study blends Ottoman and Slavic sources and examines in particular the Bosnian campaigns against the Austrians in 1736, along with the structure, personnel system, and financing of the Bosnian militia.

A Must for Military Historian Aug 18, 2004
Mr. Hickok is bringing new light on what happened at the Ottoman Austro-Hungarian border. He is doing this without getting affected by nationalist biases. And at the same time correcting most of them. It is a good book for the ones who already knew about the region's history and military history of that time. So for the novice choose another book.
