Vey good Narrative,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roman Conquests: Asia Minor, Syria and Armenia (Hardcover)
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.
