Window to the Roman Empire
Fact driven, concise and to the point. Well written and an engaging look into the realities faced during the Roman Empire.I am looking forward to read more Jacob Abbot after this.
Fantastic read! At times I forgot that it was a history book; it was like reading a well written novel with an intriguing plot and unexpected twists.
