I have only one complaint, aerial maps need to be reproduced at a better scale (glossy would help)and with more contrast for marking and notes to be better visualized. I would also like to have seen more photographs of relics along with interpretations of the finds.
I recommend this book to history and battlefield enthusiasts, archaeologists and anthropologists in training, and those that enjoy the history of science. Clearly, Scott and his associates have developed new and important methods to enrich our understanding of history through interdisciplinary science, careful research, thoughtful and collaborative analysis and descriptive presentation. I'll never look a battlefield or historic site without considering and respecting the value of the archaeologic record and the importance of preserving these features for analysis by qualified professionals supported by the volunteer enthusiasts.
