The Cimbrian War 113–101 BC

The book “The Cimbrian War 113-101 BC” by Nic Fields (Author) and Johnny Shumate (Illustrator) is another English-language entry in the book series Osprey titled “Campaign”. The reader receives a book very richly decorated with illustrations, devoted to the war of Rome with the Cimbri and Teutons in the years 113-101 BCE. The authors also describe the development of the military and political career of Gaius Marius, who after the victory over the tribes from the north will be considered the “third founder of Rome”.

This is the first Osprey book in the Campaign series that I have the opportunity to review. Osprey Publishing House is famous for very well-published items devoted to military history. Well-prepared items are supplemented with beautiful illustrations, numerous maps and numerous photos of artifacts. It is no different in this case.

At first glance, the reader will notice the beautiful paper and bright colors. Even though the book is 90 pages long, we shouldn’t underestimate it. The book was published in A4 format, and the pages contain a lot of text written by a person specializing in ancient history. The pages are also full of quotations and the use of historical sources. In addition, there is an extensive bibliography, a list of abbreviations and an index at the end of the book.

To sum up, the book is a very valuable proposition for every enthusiast of Roman military history. We receive a beautifully published book that is a pleasure to read and admire. I would highly recommend it!
