Adrian Goldsworthy has received wide acclaim for his exceptional writing on the Roman Empire—including high praise from the acclaimed military historian and author John Keegan—and here he offers a new perspective on the Empire by focusing on its greatest generals, including Scipio Africanus, Caius Marius, Pompey, Julius Caesar, and Titus Flavius. Each chapter portrays a single general, offering insight into his leadership skills and victories. This accessible, reader-friendly history tells the story of Roman warfare, from the bitter struggle with Carthage in the third century BC to the last desperate attempt to win back the Western Empire in the sixth century AD.

'Here is a highly readable compendium of military experience; Goldsworthy knows his material inside out, and he concentrates on key episodes in the campaign of outstanding Roman commanders... This is a rewarding study of the luck and judgement of powerful men, and how they put it to use in the service of Rome's imperium. HISTORY TODAY (Nov 2003) .
