In Brian Taylor's Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire series, each year is considered in turn, the development of the Empire, its external struggles and outstanding generals and politicians who shaped it. In this, the third volume, perhaps the most notorious period of Roman history is recounted. It was this period which saw the reigns of Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero, and also the beginning of the decline of the most famous empire the world has ever seen. By detailing each year in turn, the reader is able to gain an understanding of how events unfolded throughout this turbulent and fascinating period of history. Where there are a number of conflicts, each is shown as a separate entry, allowing the reader to study a chosen area of operations in isolation while assessing its wider impact upon the Romans or their enemies. It is therefore a definitive reference book for both students and readers with an interest in the period.
