Review: Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of An Empire

User Review  - James T Candor - Goodreads

Very good book. I've recently become Intertested in ancient history, and this was my first book on the Roman Empire. This book covered six major episodes during the Roman Empire, providing a good overview of the roughly 800 years of the Empire. Read full review

Review: Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of An Empire

User Review  - Eileen Hurley - Goodreads

A decent, succinct summary of the Roman Empire and what brought about it's demise. The tone is a little uneven though, as it bounces between dry history book and adventure story. I wish it had shown more maps to understand the changing boundaries of the empire over the centuries. Read full review
