The Romans were history's great men of action, making the study of Rome ideal for beginners of all ages, but especially for younger students, who are fascinated by the abundant action and drama of Roman history. In addition, an understanding of modern political history is impossible without a thorough understanding of Rome. There are thirty stories, covering the history of Rome from its founding under Romulus to the last emperor in the West. Your children will see the rise and fall of a great civilization through the lives of Horatius, Camillus, Caesar, Cicero, Marcus Aurelius, and many other larger-than-life figures. Rome is the model civilization, the mastery of which provides a foundation for all other history study. In the Memoria Press Famous Men of Rome, we have added a Glossary of People and Places, Full Color Illustrations, and maps of Rome, Italy, and the Roman Empire. (160 pages)

I am removing a star, however, because of the poor writing (and editing). The true test of writing is having it read aloud; in this area, the book does not score well. I'm reading the book aloud to my children, and it's awkward in many places. The content is still worth reading, so we plow forward, but it really is bumpy at times.
I also have a few quibbles with the emphasis on (or spin of) various facts, as mentioned by other reviewers. As such, I feel it's important to read the stories in advance so that I can edit as I see fit.
