You have no Idea

I had the incredable honor to be in 3 of Dr. Mcnally's Russian History courses at BC. He was my mentor and idol. I was very saddened at his recent demise. He is an A plus scholar and his historian the likes we'll never see again!Hey, Ray, this one's for you.

Excellent it cuts thru myth and presents the true story

McNally did a great job of presenting and backing up all of his facts with historical documents that were uncovered in the early 80s in the archives in Budapest. He discounts all of the false legends regarding Elizabeth, including one that says she showered in young girls blood, bathed in, and drank it to remain youthful. Elizabeth tortured and killed servants merely because she enjoyed the act (similiar to Vlad The Impaler). It recounts the history of her family and her subsequent trial and house arrest, although she should have been executed along with her henchmen. The high body count she incurred sounds like a legend but some evidence did come out in the trial that did substantiate it as fact, im sorry but I wont mention it more than that cos I dont want to spoil it for you. If you want a well written, no-nonsense book about the Blood Countess of Translyvania get this book.

Fascinating

Though gory and horrifying, Elizabeth Bathory was one of the most unique serial killers in history.Though most female serial killers kill to gain some financial or material reward, she, unlike any other female serial murderer in history, killed for sheer sadistic pleasure.Not only is the history itself in this book well researched,the author understood how important it was to explain the psychology of the Countess Bathory's behaviour. Though not for the faint of heart, it is definately useful for the psychology major.I am concerned about READER 140, this book is not for morbid unhealthy pleasure reading!

accurate and cool!

this was totally accurate, unlike the book by Aylesworth who didn't know squat. Erzsebet was cool
