Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Nox Helios on November 18, 2013
Format: Hardcover
An amazing and thoughtful examination of this war. Excellent scholarship and a very valuable source for anyone interested in the subject, which is fascinating to me, certainly. Hoyos does a great job of putting meat on the bones of what we get from the ancient sources, but does it with care and restraint. He creates a more detailed and credible narrative and timeline from the clues that have been collected to date, and his work enhanced my understanding of the conflict though I am not new to the subject.

Some grammatical errors mar otherwise excellent writing and editing in this great edition. Easily overlooked in light of what the work brings to you.

Thank you, Dexter Hoyos, for writing this!
