WHO WAS THE REAL ATTILA?
Rome and Attila is the third book in my series on the Fall of the Roman Empire. It is the first major work written about Attila for decades. I try to unravel the truth about this legendary figure. Contrary to popular opinion, Attila was a complex and captivating personality.
He led his steppe nomads further west than Genghis Khan or Tamerlane. He nearly destroyed the Roman Empire. But his vast ambition undid him. This book is a must read for those interested in Rome, the Huns and military history.

WHY DID ROME FALL?
The Fall of Rome (Book Two) tells the gripping story of the sack of Rome by the Goths in AD 410. It offers new answers to old questions. The fate of Rome was decided not just by emperors, soldiers and barbarians but also by an environmental disaster that has only recently come to light on the distant plains of Asia.
THE FALL BEFORE THE FALL.
The Roman Revolution (Book One) describes the little known “Crisis of the Third Century” when classical Rome nearly died. In those dark years, the Roman Empire changed fundamentally from pagan to Christian, and Constantinople grew to rival Rome itself. This forgotten time is essential to understanding why Rome fell.
