Here is a highly readable compendium of military experience; Goldsworthy knows his material inside out, and he concentrates on key episodes in the campaign of outstanding Roman commanders... This is a rewarding study of the luck and judgement of powerful men, and how they put it to use in the service of Rome's imperium. (HISTORY TODAY (Nov 2003))
Goldsworthy's study of these commanders is thoroughly researched, and authoritative. He is lucid in his exposition and narrative. The result is a book which academics will value and which nevertheless must appeal to anyone interested in the art of war and the making and defence of the Roman Empire. I found it absorbing, the best book I know on the Roman army and its commanders. (Alan Massie THE SPECTATOR (22 Nov 03))
