Description

Adrian Goldsworthy has received wide acclaim for his exceptional writing on the Roman Empire-including high praise from the acclaimed military historian and author John Keegan-and here he offers a new perspective on the Empire by focusing on its greatest generals, including Scipio Africanus, Marius, Pompey, Caesar, and Titus. Each chapter paints a fascinating portrait of a single general, offering in-depth insight into his leadership skills and victories, as well as each one's pioneering strategies, many of which are still used today. In the process, this absorbing, accessible history tells the complete story of Roman warfare, from the bitter struggle with Carthage in the 3rd century BC to the last desperate attempt to win back the Western Empire in the 6th century AD.

Professional reviews

"Goldsworthy's military history of Rome, focusing on its generals during roughly 700 years of major campaigns and battles, is clearly and succinctly told. It's lean yet informative and entertaining, and Derek Perkins brings all out all its virtues. His narration is quick moving and clear, his manner unpretentious. He brings out the sense of the text with tact and intelligence. His strong voice and crisp British accent, his brisk but comfortable pace, and his seriousness of manner fit the material and the writing: This is a popular but serious book about stern topics. Perkins sounds like an expert who is explaining the subject matter to a small group of listeners. Anyone interested in this subject will be pleased by this fine program.
