STILICHO: THE VANDAL WHO SAVED ROME
by Ian Hughes

text clean. Plastic cover added to d/w by previous owner. Following the death of the emperor Theodosius the Great in AD 395, the Western Empire was finally giving way under pressure from external threats, especially from Germanic tribes crossing the Rhine and Danube, and from internal revolts and rebellions. The author explains how a Vandal (Stilicho had a Vandal father and Roman mother) came to be given almost total control of the Western Empire and describes his attempts to save both the Empire and even Rome itself from the attacks of Alaric the Goth and other barbarian invaders. With a foreword by Adrian Goldsworthy.

CAESAR'S GALLIC TRIUMPH, ALESIA 52BC
by Peter Inker

In 52 BC at Alesia in what is now Burgundy in France, Julius Caesar pulled off one of his great feats of arms. His heavily outnumbered army utterly defeated the combined forces of the Gallic tribes led by Vercingetorix and completed the Roman conquest of Gaul. The Alesia campaign, and the epic siege in which it culminated, was one of Caesar's finest military achievements, and it has fascinated historians ever since. This first full-length study reconstructs the battle in graphic detail, combining ancient and modern sources and evidence derived from archaeological research. The author questions common assumptions about the campaign, reassesses Caesar's own account of events, and looks again at aspects of the battle that have been debated or misunderstood.

THE GOTHIC WAR: ROME'S FINAL CONFLICT IN THE WEST
by Torsten, Cumberland Jacobsen

Small stain on inside page edge. A period of stability in the early sixth century AD gave the Eastern Roman emperor Justinian an opportunity to recapture parts of the Western Empire which had been lost to invading barbarians. Justinian’s army succeeded in checking the Persians in the East and in retaking North Africa from the Vandals and Italy from the Ostrogoths, the strongest and most organized Barbarian tribe. The Gothic War, the climactic conflict over Italy between 535 AD and 554 AD decided the political future of Europe, holding in its balance the possibility that the Roman Empire might rise again.

CONSTANTINE THE GREAT WARLORD OF ROME
by Elizabeth James

Constantine the Great is a titanic figure in Roman and world history. Famed for making Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire and for moving the seat of imperial rule to 'New Rome' (Constantinople), he is most often studied for his religious and political impact. But it is often forgotten that his power and success was made possible by the use of armed force. Constantine won victories over external barbarian armies as well as defeating the Roman armies of his internal rivals in civil war. The author examines Constantine's campaigns and battles, showing that he deserves to be remembered as a great general as well as a great emperor.

THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR
by Donald Kagan

For almost three decades at the end of the 5th century B.C. the Peloponnesian war pitted Greek against Greek. The Athenians with their rich legacy of democracy and political rights were pitted against the militaristic, oligarchic Spartan state. The result was a period of unprecedented brutality and with it came a collapse in institutions, beliefs and restraints.

THE FIRST PUNIC WAR
by J. F. Lazenby

This fascinating book provides a study of the longest continuous war in ancient history and the greatest naval conflict ever fought. The First Punic War was Rome's first overseas war. It was also history's first "world war," lasting a quarter century (264-241 BC) and involving major powers battling at land and sea over a wide geographic area. In fact, the largest naval battle in history, in terms of sheer numbers of ships and men, took place at Ecnomus in 256 BC. The book includes clear maps and provides the historical sources in each chapter.
