It says something about the paucity of reliable source materials that the author has to spend the first chapter explaining his own methodology. Any book on this period is going to contain significant guesswork, but at least Ilkka has placed events into the context of how military operations would proceed in a post-Roman Britain. The strength of the book is the military detail, the weakness the endless supposition. It’s certainly detailed and interesting.
