I've started reading Stephan Zweig's "Decisive Moments in History: Twelve Historical Miniatures" . Only read the Handel part so far. As usual Zweig is a very captivating writer, and even though his narrative is exaggerated it is still based on historical facts. You can choose to read some parts if you are not interested in others, though I would suggest reading all of it. Chapters are 10-20 pages long. I'm looking forward to reading Sultan Mehmed/Fall of byzantium part.
