This paper identifies the decisive factors in the course and outcome of wars in Late Antiquity. While many of these factors are also significant to war in other periods, it is argued that an unprecedented level of fortification work, carried out by successive regimes, was the distinctive characteristic of late antique warfare. Rather than a negative, solely defensive measure, fortress cities, forts, watchtowers and cross walls gave the Romans a platform for aggressive campaigning within and beyond the frontiers of the empire. These defences enabled the Romans to control intelligence, supplies, manpower, and local hearts and minds within campaign arenas.
