Good summary and overview of all the most important battles in the ancient world. The standout feature is the double-page bird's eye view and illustration of the battles numbered for the sequence of the engagement. Otherwise, you have a brief summary of the battle, a text to accompany the conflict, and abundant illustrations that discuss general features of Roman military life, strategy and tactics.
