"This is a worthwhile addition."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002)
"The author relates tales of shifting...allegiances, pockets of resistance and internal strife; and of an invading army that was technologically advanced, more disciplined...Using both secondary and primary sources, Barchusen presents convincing arguments. Chapter notes, annotated suggestions for further reading, and a bibliography provide students with other sources of information. Black-and-white reproductions appear throughout."
