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.

ALEXANDER AT THE BATTLE OF THE GRANICUS
by Rupert Matthews

In the third book of the Campaign in Context series, the author looks to the first major campaign of Alexander the Great, who was just 20 when he led his army into battle at Granicus. Despite his youth and his army being heavily outnumbered, he was victorious, and it was this victory that allowed him to conquer Asia Minor. The course of this key battle remains controversial, owing to conflicting accounts in contemporary sources. Rupert Matthews carefully balances the evidence from textual sources with knowledge of the battlefield and reconstructed weaponry in order to explain the events of the battle to the reader, and the context in which it took place.
