Publisher Description

The great work of Gibbon is indispensable to the student of history. The literature of Europe offers no substitute for The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It has obtained undisputed possession, as rightful occupant, of the vast period which it comprehends. However some subjects, which it embraces, may have undergone more complete investigation, on the general view of the whole period, this history is the sole undisputed authority to which all defer, and from which few appeal to the original writers, or to more modern compilers.

The decline and fall of the Roman Empire

A difficult read; the structure, time frames and lack of maps and illustrations make it very hard to follow. Some good research but difficult to mentally collate because of the book's structure.
