Product Description

Review

The quality of the research is, however, never in doubt, and the book superbly charts the drawn out conquest of a region which, although often overlooked, nevertheless "dominated political agendas at Rome for nearly 150 years. Ancient Warfare

The book covers the Roman conquests in Asia Minor and its implication in entering in contact with the Hellenistic powers. The international repercussions are extensively covered. I enjoyed particularly the section concerning the Mithidatic wars. The character of the archi-enemy of Rome is accurately portrayed and the exhausting campaigns to subdue the Pontic king are vividly depicted.

This is my first book of the series and I will go on reading the others. The only real weakness is in the maps the quality of which is not real at very high standard. The maps also of the battles are minimal but in this case I used Prietrykowsky Great Battles of Hellenistic World.

Good set of books, focussing on particular geographical areas. I would fully recommend all of the books in this series.

Good Info but Lacking in Maps 1 Mar. 2012
By bonnie_blu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author throws a lot of information at the reader in a little over 100 pages, which would have been fine if more maps had been included that coincided with the text. Without additional maps, historical events were a little hard to follow at times.

Includes good info but.. 11 Mar. 2014
By Jared L. Gibbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First I want to compare it to other books in the series, being that this is a large subject in the history of Rome I kinda expected about 200+ pages,(at least in the general 175 or so pages range that the rest seem to be) after ordering it I looked to my horror it barely 120 pages, and even then 10 of them were notes on sources, and then the standard appendix, and extra stuff.
Compared to the other 4 books of this series I have read, none are fantastically written, nor a complete history of the subject, but I enjoy them partly because of the quick read ability and easy to find refrence material, but I felt this was poorly written compared to the rest, while the reference material is there, It almost seems as though half the book is quoted from Polybus or Livy, and unfortunately a book of quotations that I have in books already, and many of you already do too.
There is one thing I really do like about this book and others in this series, and likely kept it from getting 2 stars, I love maps, doesn't need to be fancy, just something to refer to, and then the drawings in the middle, again not great but still something that shows you what they are referring to rather than describe.

Names names and more names, but no real depth. 29 Aug. 2013
By Tiber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Good book, if you like lots of lists of names, but no real depth to the material, probably because it is so short. Looks big, put is small than most books on the era, and while good, this shortness does not go far enough. Still, good for High School, but not for college level or above.
Roman expansion to the East 8 Oct. 2014
By Anibal Madeira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the most interesting moments of Roman military and diplomatic history. The expansion to the East, facing the powerful Hellenistic states like the Seulecid Kingdom, involvement in Macedonian and Greek politics, alliances with some powers in Asia Minor like Pergamum, and obviously, the main event, the fight against Mithridates. The author also explains the impact of Roman presence and influence before the beginning of hostilities and the Asian vespers.

This book would be huge and far from the usual titles of this series if the author delved into details, minute biographies, heavy analysis of the sources, etc. So he chose to summarize all events in a compact and concise summary of the events and characters. Although this might be a quality for some readers who want a clear, concise view of this momentous power move to the East, other readers (like me) will be wanting for more, much more. I read this book in a single day, and I liked it a lot but I sincerely expected other layers of analysis. The author writes in a compelling and absorbing way; it also have good maps, tables compiling the most important events, some pictures of important geographical landmarks and Excellent color plates by Graham Sumner, including: Seleucid light cavalry fighting Roman Velites; a Roman Equites facing a Seleucid Companion; Close combat action between a Roman legionary and a phalangite; Seleucid Cataphract charge at Magnesia.

This is a very good introduction to the subject, but I’m waiting for another book on this subject by Professor Evans.
Another fine book in the series 27 Feb. 2014

The Roman Conquests series is a great way to learn about the way in which the Romans went from a small city to conquering most of the western world.
