By Paul A. Zoch

The occasions and personalities of old Rome spring to existence during this historical past, from its founding in 753 B.C. to the loss of life of the philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius in A.D. 180.

Paul A. Zoch offers, in modern language, the heritage of Rome and the tales of its protagonists?such as Romulus and Remus, Horatius, and Nero-which are so usually passed over from extra really good studies.

With a watch element, Zoch courses his readers in the course of the army campaigns and political advancements that formed Rome’s upward thrust from a small Italian urban to the best imperial strength the realm had ever identified. We witness the lengthy fight opposed to the enemy urban of Carthage. We stick with Caesar as he campaigns in Britain, and we discover the ebb and circulate of Rome’s fortunes within the Hellenistic East. Writing with the assumption that such tales include ethical classes which are appropriate at the present time, Zoch provides a story that's either interesting and informative. An afterword takes the heritage to the autumn of the Roman Empire within the West in A.D. 476.
