Book Review- A Dark History of the Celts by Martin J. Dougherty

I've had a long fascination with the Celts and their history and this book covers a little bit of everything.  I especially love how they go into the different kinds and tribes of Celts there were.  In fact, out of the books on Celtic history and mythology I've read, there wasn't too much mention of the different tribes of Celts.  It is very interesting to read how the different tribes of Celts varied while still being under the term 'Celtic'. There were so many differences depending on where they were from compared to where they moved to and what influences they adopted from other cultures.  Also their long term conflicts with the Romans is very enlightening and the breakdown of how each side fought and how certain things were advantageous for their attacks and defenses were extremely interesting to read.  This book is definitely a good read for those interested in Celtic history.
