In the Name of Rome: The Men Who Won the Roman Empire

In the Name of Rome: The Men Who Won the Roman Empire


A definitive heritage of the good commanders of old Rome, from bestselling writer Adrian Goldsworthy.
 
“In his elegantly available sort, Goldsworthy bargains gripping and rapidly erudite bills of Roman wars and the good captains who fought them.  His heroes are by no means flavorless and usual, yet magnificently Roman.  And it truly is specifically Goldsworthy's imaginative and prescient of commanders deftly browsing the large, impossible to resist waves of Roman army culture, whereas navigating the floating logs, reefs, and treacherous sandbanks of Roman civilian politics, that makes the publication necessary not just to these attracted to Rome and her battles, yet to someone who reveals it amazing that army males, straight away pushed and imperiled through the extraordinary and idiosyncratic methods in their societies, can accomplish nice deeds.” —J. E. Lendon, writer of Soldiers and Ghosts: A background of conflict in Classical Antiquity
