Reviews

"For far too long, the Great Revolt has been overlooked in the grand sweep of history. Stephen Dando-Collins finally gives this epochal event the focus it deserves, and in the way that only he can. Full of tragedy and triumph, heartbreak and heroism, Conquering Jerusalem deftly balances masterful storytelling with exquisite attention to detail. This book is a must-read to understand this conflict, which still reverberates to this day." -Phillip Barlag, author of Evil Roman Emperors, The History of Rome in 12 Buildings, and The Leadership Genius of Julius Caesar

"A gripping and pacy account of the Great Jewish Revolt against the might of Rome, from its chaotic inception to the final destruction and leveling of Jerusalem in AD 70. Stephen Dando-Collins narrates his well-researched account of the complex and often harrowing events with a punchy clarity. One can't help thinking that the revolt might have succeeded were it not for the extreme level of factionalism and infighting that beset the Jewish cause from beginning to end." -Paul N. Pearson, author of Maximinus Thrax: From Common Soldier to Emperor of Rome

"Stephen Dando-Collins tells this story as a rip-roaring yarn that clarifies both the complexities of combat and the political maneuvers that influenced the outcome of the military struggle." -David Richter, professor emeritus at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

"Dando-Collins' skillful descriptions enable us to see not only how much, but how little the world has changed." -Portland Book Review
