Josephus gets five stars, I mean, c'mon, it's incredible.

The highly biased, 18th century Catholic annotations of this edition, however, get zero stars.

Three stars is the balance.

Read Josephus. Do. There's so much incredible history here. So much instant time travel and deeper understanding of where so much of our current world situation comes from. But for the love of whatever merciful deity you worship, get a more modern translation and annotation!
