Reviews
Kelly goes beyond the conventional mode and bravely ventures into...military detail.--Edward Luttwak "New Republic"
Accessible history that enlightens as well as informs.-- "Richmond Times"
[A] first-rate history [that] provides a singularly fresh look at a factitious period in the life of Ancient Rome.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Vivid [and] engrossing.-- "Booklist"
Christopher Kelly...grapples with the delicate task of reconstructing the scant evidence on Attila, without elevating him to warm and fuzzy proportions or caving in to the view of British historians of the barbarian school or the German totemmakers of Hunnensturm...Kelly captures the tension with an assured style.--Jonathan E. Lazarus "Star-Ledger"
Written with a rare combination of profound professional knowledge...and a novelist's sensitivity to every nuance of scene and character.--Paul Cartledge, Cambridge University
