To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Strategikon of Emperor Maurice is an interesting and unique look at the Roman world in the 6th century complete with tactics, enemy's and various other information on the mind set of the then still mighty empire before the explosion of Islam in the next hundred years changed the world forever. As I am not an expert on ancient Greek/Byzantine language writing I cannot comment on the translation anymore then to say I found it to be clearly written, presented and easy to understand.
Ich habe das für meinen besten Freund gekauft. Der hat schon ewig danach gesucht. Das Strategikon ist das beste Strategie-Buch, welches es gibt. Es hat immer noch Bestand und ist leider nicht (nur zu horrenden Preisen) in deutsch erhältlich!!
The Strategikon by an anonymous author was an interesting read for me. It's short, and provides interesting information on different "ethnic" groups as perceived by Byzantine military officers (and writers). Based on other books centered on Late Antique-Early Medieval Byzantium that I have read, this work is fundamental for understanding the army in the Early and Middle Byzantine historical periods.
