Chapman, IJI&C 16.2, says that the author's memoir "provides a shocking look into this almost forgotten part of history. [Aussaresses] tells of the horrible torture methods he personally used on suspected FLN militants. But he does not give a clue as to the Algerian side of the story." For Clayton, I&NS 18.1, the author's apologia for his actions is "unconvincing." In addition, "[c]onversations of over 45 years ago are reported verbatim"; and "trivia is mixed with matters of the utmost seriousness."

Sheldon, IJI&C 11.1, finds that the authors' "description of intelligence gathering along the frontiers of the empire is ... the most detailed study to date.... The chapters on 'The Acquisition of Tactical Intelligence' (pp. 40ff) ... are the best and most comprehensive in the book." The biggest problem with the book is that it is by classicists for classicists: "The authors' text will be incomprehensible to anyone not intimately familiar with the workings of the Roman empire, the Latin language, and Roman history."
