Adrian Goldsworthy has a doctorate from Oxford University. His first book, THE ROMAN ARMY AT WAR, was recognised by John Keegan, the general Editor of THE HISTORY OF WARFARE, as an exceptionally impressive work, original in treatment and impressive in style. His other books include THE PUNIC WARS, and the volume on ROMAN WARFARE in John Keegan's CASSELL HISTORY OF WARFARE series.
Here is a highly readable compendium of military experience; Goldsworthy knows his material inside out.--HISTORY TODAY
