With stunning photography to stir the imagination and intelligent narrative, Time/Life weaves legend and fact that was eventually fashioned into the genius and character of the Romans that started in the eighth century B.M.E. Eight chapters present the background of Rome, how it went from village to empire, the Pax Romana, the ritual of daily life, its poets and propagandists, the Gods of Rome, the end of its greatness, and its persistent presence.
A synopsis of immortal Romans, a chronology of events significant in Roman history, relief maps and charts show the extent of Roman rule in the known world, and its place among the great ages of man. The mercilessness of the Roman soldier and his mastery of siege warfare in the battle of Avaricum as well as his successful maneuver against the Macedonian phalanx at Cynoscephalae are depicted through a fold-out, photo display of miniatures and terrain at the museum at West Point.Read more ›
