A very interesting book this one, covering in the main the clash between the Romans and the Huns. It covers extremely well all aspects of this, political, economics, and of course military for such a small work.

Which brings me to the only reason it doesn't get a 5. While it is a stand-alone work it is part of a series by the same author and refers to other books in the series for clarification of quite a few points, which if you don't have them is obviously annoying. The other slight problem is the translation is a bit hit and miss in a few places, but nothing major.

Those two minor points this a well written book, with a good amount of excellent illustrations and well done maps. The author clearly knows his field and it's not at all dry or academic either. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in the period.
