      The book throws a lot of information at the reader in a little over 100 pages, which would have been fine if maps had been included Without additional maps, it was a little hard to follow in parts.

      This is not a bad book, but highly focused and than a bit dry Recommended if you are doing research relating to Roman military engagements in Asia, Syria, and or Armenia Otherwise dry reading Not for everyone.
