definitive work; in the preparation of this revised edition, Dr.
Taylor has updated some information and included valuable appendices.
After an initial analysis of the political and military considerations
which stimulated their construction, the author considers the
roads themselves; his account of their construction brings home
to the reader the nature of the many difficulties encountered
and the techniques used by General Wade and his less well-known
successor, Major Caulfeild. Walkers, in particular, will welcome
this splendid book and the fascinating information that it provides.
