Tom Holland, as ever, weaves a terrific narrative of the decline and fall of the Roman Republic (the more interesting period of Rome).
From the Gracchi attempted reforms all the way to Octavian ascending to August and absolutely everything in between, this is a must for a Roman enthusiast.
Tom Holland is an expert on all civil wars, from Sulla vs Marius to Cpt America vs Iron Man
