This book, which has been both written and beautifully illustrated by Ancient Warfare magazine's Radu Oltean, details the history of Rome's wars in Dacia. Besides its rich illustrations (over 190 colored images: illustrations, artifacts, maps, monuments), it also includes a number of maps and photographs of relevant archaeological site and finds.

This book offers a fresh view on the Dacian-Roman wars, and aims to eliminate as much as possible from the ideological nationalist ballast that came to burden the Romanian view of history. Oltean gathered and adapted most archaeological findings and historical studies, old and new, for a wider public of history lovers. Avoiding too much speculation, he ties together the disparate sources to create a new, richly illustrated history of the Roman conquest of Dacia, suggesting possible scenarios of what happened on the rare instances when historical or archaeological sources were more generous.

Some readers may be surprised to discover that events or their interpretation are not at all as learned in school or seen in dramatized movies, in old books and magazines or even in certain museums. What is shown in this book is Radu Oltean's attempt to come closer to a historical truth we all try to search for.
