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.

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.

IMPERIAL GENERAL
by Philip Matyszak

Small mark on inside page, underlining on p47. The Remarkable Career of Petellius Cerialis, one of the few Imperial Roman officers, below the level of Emperor, whose career it is possible to follow in sufficient detail to write a coherent biography. Cerealis was in Britain when Boudicca's revolt erupted (60 or 61 AD) and marched to confront her. He lost most of his force but narrowly escaped with his own skin intact. In 69 AD, the infamously tumultuous 'year of the four emperors', he was in Rome, the seat of conspiracy. When his uncle, Vespasian, decided to make his own bid for the imperial purple Cerealis' life was at risk and he was forced to escape from the city to join his uncle.

MITHRIDATES THE GREAT: ROME'S INDOMITABLE ENEMY
by Philip Matyszak

The Mithridiatic wars stretched over half a century and two continents, and this story is built about the dominant character of Mithridates, connoisseur of poisons, arch-schemer and strategist, resilient in defeat, savage and vindictive in victory. Few enough leaders went to war with Rome and lived long to tell the tale, but in the first half of the first century BC, Mithridates did so three times. At the high point of his career his armies swept the Romans out of Asia Minor and Greece, reversing a century of Roman expansion in the region.
