Dahm's command of the source material is comprehensive and nuanced.
He performs that most critical function in both history and law-enforcement/
intelligence work – source analysis. He is skeptical and careful in his appre-
ciation of the sources, and reveals a deep understanding of the agendas and
personal stories of the writers in question, applying this to his narrative and
being sure to alert the reader to those inevitable points (most inevitable in
ancient history) where the only data we have must be taken with a rather large
grain of salt.
