Rome grew from a small city state into an Empire that encompassed most of the 
known world. Having started its expansion, Rome was compelled to keep 
expanding. The moment it stopped expanding it came under pressure from the 
barbarians and internal forces that caused its fall. It is therefore a story of military 
expansion in a series of wars, followed by defeats that saw the barbarians at the 
very gates of Rome. The author has captured this process and presented it in an 
engaging manner that looks at the detail of tactics, clothing and weapons but paints 
this all with as much excitement as a novel.

Far too often, books on this period of history have excluded many readers because 
they take a very academic approach where the authors seem more interested in 
presenting their academic credentials and serious research than in telling what is a 
compelling story. A story filled with excitement, suspense, brutality, highs and lows, 
achievement and disaster. This book is in a very different category where the 
narrative moves along well and the author's passion for his subject and his careful 
research comes out naturally within the absorbing tale of campaigns.
