Rome and Her Enemies by Jane Penrose

Book Description

Spanning over a thousand years and an immense geographical area, the Roman Empire was the greatest in world history. Rome's power was won on the battlefield, and the greatness of the Empire is reflected in the reputations of the warrior nations it subdued. The Etruscans, the Carthaginians, the British, the Persians, the Goths and the Huns are among the forces that battled the might of Rome. "Rome and Her Enemies" juxtaposes the society and military structure of each of these peoples with those of the contemporary Roman army. This book is lavishly illustrated throughout, and colour photographs, artwork and maps support the text to provide a comprehensive account of the rise and fall of an empire created and destroyed by war.
