Review: A History of Rome

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

A great beginning-to-end text of Roman history. I've read quite a bit of Rome in my days… in pieces. However this was the first complete overview I've had. Nothing spectacular, but solid and thorough - just enough to help choose a more specific topic for my next read of Rome. Read full review
