Genre: History, Non-Fiction
Publisher: Pen & Sword Military
This book is subtitled “The Era of Roman Conquest” and traces the history of the conflicts between the Romans and the various Barbarian tribes that occupied what is now Western Europe. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this book so much. I don’t usually venture into books about war but this one proved to be worth the effort. The author has thoroughly researched the period of the Barbarian wars and presents the chronology of the battles in an engaging way. The details of the battles are here, as much as we can know of them, and the politics of the time as well. This would be a good choice for those interested in Ancient History, Roman history, or military history.
