Synopsis

Spanning over a thousand years and an immense geographical area, the Roman Empire was the greatest in world history. Rome's power was won on the battlefield, and the greatness of the Empire is reflected in the reputations of the warrior nations it subdued. The Etruscans, the Carthaginians, the British, the Persians, the Goths and the Huns are among the forces that battled the might of Rome. "Rome and Her Enemies" juxtaposes the society and military structure of each of these peoples with those of the contemporary Roman army. This book is lavishly illustrated throughout, and colour photographs, artwork and maps support the text to provide a comprehensive account of the rise and fall of an empire created and destroyed by war.

An Oxford history graduate, Jane Penrose has published historical books for 10 years. She recently edited the highly acclaimed D-Day companion for Osprey Publishing. Jane lives and works in Norfolk, England. Educated at Cambridge and Oxford, Tom Holland is an acclaimed author of both fiction and non-fiction, who has written widely on the ancient world. He has adapted Homer, Herodotus, Thucydides and Virgil for BBC Radio, and is the author of Rubicon: The Triumph and Tragedy of the Roman Republic (2003), praised by A. N. Wilson as 'A brilliant and completely absorbing study', and Persian Fire: The First World Empire and the battle for the West (2006).
