Reading a wikia article is not always the best place to go for sources in depth. Its enough for basics though.
In general though I agree. A lot of it was through treachery and bribery but there were some field battles too.
The Lusitanian war was full of fighting and I generally recommend reading up about it. Viriathu was certainly one of the toughest leaders they had ever faced, and I dont recall them defeating him outright, but rather through treachery and assassination.
