5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy read, 20 Nov 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Crisis of Rome: The Jugurthine and Northern Wars and the Rise of Marius (Hardcover)
A very descent work. Doesn't wonder around, provides exatly what you would expect from a book with this title and of this size. What makes it really worth reading is that the author tends to not just state the facts but also do a good deal of analysis.
The only problem that I had with this book is that I received a different edition (the cover was different). I can't say anything about the edition with Marius on the cover, but mine had an overall impression of having been poorly edited. Not mentioning a great amount of typographical errors throughout the whole book it had, for example a blank page titled: "List of illustrations to follow once images are finalized". For me this is the second book of Pen & Sword Military that has that kind of problem (other one being "Mithridates the Great: Rome's Indomitable Enemy"), which is kind of strange considering that quality of paper and cover is quite ok.
But that is a minor thing. Otherwise a really worthy read.
