This is one of the best Osprey books I've read. It shows a good understanding of the situation in the Eastern Roman Empire as well as the European spaces bordering the great steppe. The analysis of the political and economic situation is good, the treatment of the forces is reasonably detailed and explained.

The battle maps are great, attractive, easy to understand and well organized. ( )
