The following two essays shift the focus to Judea and the long season of wars that culminated in the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70. At issue are the mobilization of the legions, their intersection with local communities, and, lastly, a topography of siege operations.There is also an essay on the military camp at Dura-Europos and one on Roman conflicts with the Parthians/Arcasids.
