Adrian Goldsworthy has received wide acclaim for his exceptional writing on the Roman Empire--including high praise from the acclaimed military historian and author John Keegan-- and here he offers a new perspective on the Empire by focusing on its greatest generals, including Scipio Africanus, Marius, Pompey, Caesar, and Titus. Each chapter paints a fascinating portrait of a single general, offering in-depth insight into his leadership skills and victories, as well as each one's pioneering strategies, many of which are still used today. In the process, this absorbing, reader-friendly history tells the complete story of Roman warfare, from the bitter struggle with Carthage in the 3rd century BC to the last desperate attempt to win back the Western Empire in the 6th century AD. "A selection of the History Book Club."

Absorbing. The best book I know on the Roman army and its commanders. Here is a highly readable compendium of military experience; Goldsworthy knows his material inside out.--HISTORY TODAY

Andrew on
John Keegan was right on the money when he stated Goldsworthy is one of our most promising young military historians today. This is one of the best-written and most interesting and entertaining books on the subject I've had the pleasure of reading. Goldsworthy covers the careers of 15 of Rome's greatest generals, beginning with Fabius and Marcellus in the 3rd Century BC to Belisarius in the 6th Century AD and beyond. It's one of my favourites which I'll definitely read again, and I'd highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in ancient Rome or military history.
