Walsh's edition is designed specifically for use by students at A-Level. The commentary explains points of historical and literary importance, and elucidates grammatical peculiarities and passages of unusual difficulty. The introduction sets Livy in the context of Roman historiography as a whole, and deals in particular with Book XXI. There is a full vocabulary as well as an index of names and illustrative maps and plans.
