The 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. Revised edition first published 1996.
