"In ""Sir Judas,"" Sabatini attempts to draw a group of more or less famous events using the fiction form, but without amplifying it by imagination. Each incident is an actual historic happening; the dialogue is such as was chronicled at the time, added to by the paraphrases of contemporary chroniclers; the settings are authentic. A hard task, this, the author has set himself, but his labor was lightened by being able to choose the most vivid and bizarre "nights" in all countries and all periods of history. How greatly he has succeeded is for the reader to judge.
