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

User Review  - John Kaufmann - Goodreads

Good introduction to Roman history. This fit my needs nicely. It's very readable. It surveys some key events and provides political contexts and decision points. If a complete, detailed history is what you want, go elsewhere. Read full review
