otoh, dudes like me with no idea what happened during the siege on constantinople, kinda don't mind a little story-telling and filling some basics c:AFAICT, this description of the siege and fall of Constantinople is almost entirely the same as OTL. While well written, there doesn't seem to be any AH content, except the exile of Antigonos (and possibly the dispatch of Gattilusio troops, which seems to have been in response to the prince's arrival; did the extra defenders extend the siege?).
The recapitulation of OTL should have been limited to a required summary, with divergences noted. IMO.
