I just finished it recently and you are right. Overall, a very good read, especially concerning the history of the Saracens. In the latter parts, though, there are some foreign policy misconceptions (in particular, conflating US imperialism in the years after 1898 with spreading the American Revolution) noted that have metastasized since the year of publication, 1943. BTW, the Little House books are also great!
