The perfect gift for all history buffs is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
At 64 pages this is a good reference work, dealing mainly with Tower houses and their evolvement, with excellent illustrations and artwork.
Recommended For further reading on Scottish castles and strongholds see Scottish Baronial Castles 1250-1450, Strongholds of the Border Reivers: Fortifications of the Anglo-Scottish Border 1296-1603.
A good overview on the Spanish guerrilla war against the French excellent plates and artwork.
Recommended
For a more in-depth work with a different slant read Charles Esdaile's Fighting Napoleon: Guerrillas, Bandits and Adventures in Spain 1808-1814. Highly recommended.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By john walsh on 2 July 2004
Format: Paperback
My first award for this title would have been five stars, especially since it concerns an area of the Peninsular War that has, until recently, been generally overlooked. On second reading however, I lowered it to four stars. The contents covers a wide variety of the conflict, although it could have done with more on the French and Spanish units employed fighting the Guerrillas. (A future title perhaps?) It contains many interesting points, some which explain that many Guerrilla leaders had to flee to France after the war and many became bandits, while others became officers and commanders in regular army units. The style of the book and artwork is excellent and now includes a contents page. The only real negative points came from the Guerrillas being described as carying knives for honour rather than to kill with, while the text itself hints that many saw being a guerrilla an easier and more profitable way of living than working the land. In short, a title enjoyable to read and well worth owning.

Had to paint some miniature figures of Spanish peasants and guerrillas and this book helped very much in giving me an idea of what they might have worn. What it doesn't do is describe types of cloth, colours in vogue or styles of civilian dress so an awful lot of information is assumed and guesswork, the colour plates were good and most helpful.
