Was only going to give it 4 stars because of the shallow the Masada campaign summary. I would think in the
authors mind that the revolt was over when Jerusalem fell and Masada was a footnote to the revolt.
The reason I decided to give it 5 stars was being able to see how a Marxist thinks & writes. He did a few Trotsky references.
and his description of the battles (less Masada) were very good
I found it interesting that knowing he had to change his status from Marxist to socialist to get elected
to a public office but still claimed to be a Marxist was eye opening on his thinking .

Very interesting read. The author is clearly well informed about the history of the period. Probably a bit too scholarly for some people but if anyone is interested in this period of history the is the book to read.

Personally I think the author did a great job

A fascinating glimpse of an eventful period of history that effects us even today.
Christian believers should be aware that some content may be challenging for them but perhaps that is even more reason to read it.
Well written and easy to read.

Is this a PhD Thesis ? Well written in parts, but the politics drags if you are just after the military action. Also the coverage of the Masada campaign was extremely superficial. This is a pity as the physical evidence of the Roman tactics can be seen from the Masada fortifications, and more could have been done to add some literary flesh to the bones oulined in the Judean desert.

First let me state that this book is very well written, although at times the prose tends to be a bit "over the top". It was a good read, the the battle descriptions are excellent, although I don't agree with all of his interpretations of ancient battle. He has been heavily infuenced by Keegan, and the works of SLA Marshal, even though the latter has been discredited.

My main complaint about the book is its Marxist historical view.

It has a bibliography of 104 books; but 6 are Marxist books on the English Civil War, 18 are other Marxist works, and yet only two of the works are by post-1990 Israeli authors! Trotsky, and John Reed are quoted, and Poncho Villa is glorified in a work on Jewish history.

The path that he leads us on can be frustrating. As`the author is about to describe the battle of Beth Horon we enter a 60 page excusus on Qumran.

To this author even Danton is too conservative! Yet, he does make one think; perhaps there was an element of class conflict in this struggle...but surely not to the way he portrays this, as an exclusively a struggle of class.

The first time that I opened this book - the binding broke. I read the preface and skimmed the book while I had it. I definitely needed to return it because of the damage. After perusing the book I decided that I didn't want it replaced.

I was disappointed that the basic geography of the book follows the current popular myth that the original "Fortress Antonia" is today called the "Temple Mount". If the intellectual acumen of this writer cannot see from the historical record that the fortress was the only structure to survive the destruction of the Roman army then I don't find that I can trust his perceptions of any other part of his text either. Just like Jesus said - there was not one stone left upon another of the Temple. And it is true. The 400 foot SE wall of the Temple mount Tower is non existent today.

In order to believe the Temple Mount myth you have to contradict the account of a very credible eyewitness, which today's intellectuals find easy to do. So in support of this myth they discredit many sources of history, but especially Josephus.
