"…an excellent book on a subject that is both historically significant and fascinating to read. It is one I can highly recommend." -Scott Van Aken, (November 2008)

"This small volume, after a brief history of the period, describes the design and development of the fortifications and offers a tour of the major sites. After describing life in the fortifications in peace and wear, the book focuses on several sieges of Jerusalem and on the epic Roman siegfe of Masada, which remains deeply embedded in the Israeli consciousness. This book is an interesting overview of a period of fortifications in a part of the world that dominates headlines today." -Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal (September 2008)

"If you’re and ancient history buff, The Forts of Judaea 168 BC-AD 73 is for you. This is an illustrated primer on Hasmonaean and Herodian fortifications spanning the period from the Maccabean revolt to the Roman-Jewish war."- Sheldon Kirshner, The Canadian Jewish News (July 2008)

"This is one of the titles in the series that cover relatively new ground for most military history buffs and is well worth having." -J.E. Kauffman, SiteO Newsletter (June 2008)
