The book is very well written and will keep your attention the whole way through. Often, when authors have to be specific to all the events that lead up to the climax of the situation being presented they lose themselves and the reader in the details. This book provides great knowledge as well as archeological proof as to specific locations that the battle took place.

I would, however, remind you that this is not the battle that stopped or ended Rome, like the title suggests. It was, without a doubt, a defeat that showed Rome was weakening, but Rome did not fall for a very long time afterwards.

Teutoburg Forest was a slaughter.
