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 PERSIAN INVASIONS OF GREECE
by Dr. Arthur Keaveney

In 490 BC Darius I, King of Persia and the most powerful man in the world, led a massive invasion of some minor states on the western borders of his huge empire. The main enemy was Athens. The resultant Battle of Marathon was a disaster for Darius. The Persians being forced plotted an even bigger expedition to conquer Athens and the whole of Greece once and for all and the second invasion came ten years later, under Darius' successor, Xerxes. This led to the legendary last stand of the Spartan King Leonidas at Thermopylae, the sacking of Athens and the famous naval clash at Salamis, which saved Greece.

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.

CATACLYSM 90BC
by Philip Matyszak

We are accustomed to think of the late Republic as a period in which Rome enjoyed uninterrupted military success. Yet at the start of the first century BC, Rome faced a hostile army less than a week's march from the Capitol. Three Roman consuls died in battle, and two Roman armies were soundly defeated in the heartland of Italy. Rome's erstwhile Italian allies had the arms, training and military systems of the Roman army which they usually fought alongside, so Rome's usual military advantages were nullified. This brought the war between them and the Republic down to a clash of generals.
