THE ROMAN REVOLUTION
The Roman Revolution is the first book in my series on the Fall of the Roman Empire. It describes the little known “crisis of the third century”. Long before the collapse of the Roman Empire in the fifth century, in the years between AD 235-275, barbarian invasions, civil war and plague devastated ancient Rome. Out of this ordeal, a revolutionary new order arose. It was the first step in the history of the Fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the modern world.
THE FALL OF ROME
WHY DID ROME FALL?
The Fall of Rome is the second book in my series on the Fall of the Roman Empire. In this gripping retelling of the sack of the city of Rome in AD 410 by the Goths, a new interpretation of an old story is presented. The fate of Rome was decided not just by emperors, soldiers and barbarians but also by an environmental disaster.
A catastrophic megadrought on the Asian steppes in the fourth century AD forced the migration of entire peoples - Huns, Goths, Vandals and others - west into the Roman Empire. They met an empire weakened from war with Persia. Rome's misfortunes multiplied as it suffered from mistakes on the battlefield, civil war, religious unrest and political incompetence.
