A Listmania! list by Matt in NY(New York, NY United States)
The list author says: "These books will take you to ancient times and introduce you to the men and women who fought for survival and lived for the glory of battle. Many are historical fiction, some pure fiction, some legend, a bit of fantasy, but all have a true feeling for the times. Ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, the Dark Ages of Britain, and beyond. Enjoy! You may never return. ( Due to lack of space, I have only listed the 1st title of some of the longer series. I have also listed and a few that I have not loved so much as well.)"
"VERCINGETORIX! The historical leader of the ancient tribes of Gaul (modern France) united the land to fend off the coming Roman invasion of Julius Caesar. Plenty of peppery dialogue keeps the action moving as Vercingetorix and Caesar play cat and mouse up until the final battle. If you know history you know how it ends. But this one is a nice ride."
"1 of 9! The beginnings on King Arthur's Roman britain. A very long series, but worth the time. Just don't expect to see Arthur for many, many books. The final installments, The Lance Thrower & The Eagle which takes us up to Lancelot (here renamed) have yet to be read."
"Resetting it in the time of William the Conquerer (William II actually) and blending Celtic mythology make for a very real and developed new Robin Hood. We like our heroes dark these days it seems. This does not disappoint. Continue the adventure in Book2: Scarlet, and Book 3: Tuck."
"Egypt 526 BC. Bloody battles, betrayal, and intrigue. Flawed heroes and evil villains larger than life all clash as Pharaoh's armies brace for the oncoming Persian invasion. Fast paced and great fun! I'm looking forward to his other title: Memnon. Other Scott Oden book are waiting..."
"Part 1 of 3. Intrigue, power and greed in ancient Egypt. Hard to put down historical fiction of the Pharaoh Akenhaten. Very nicely captures the brutality, beauty and essence of the court of the Pharaohs. The following 2 books fall a bit short but worth finishing the tale."
"KIng Tut "Liite. A quick but enjoyable book on the brief reign of Tut. With flash forwards to the attempt of trying to solve the Kings murder. If you have some knowledge of Tut you may want to skip this one."
