AD 262: The Roman Imperium is in turmoil after the struggle for the throne that brought Gallienus to power. Ephesus, the metropolis of the Eastern Empire, lies in ruins, shattered by a mighty earthquake.

A relentlessly gripping and richly authentic tale of ancient warfare, The Caspian Gates is an adventure for Rome enthusiasts and scholars alike. Widely acclaimed for his Warrior of Rome series, Harry Sidebottom "provides a well-constructed, well-paced, and gripping account…which, as a good series should, leaves the reader eagerly anticipating the next installment" (Times Literary Supplement).

    Any additional comments?

    These books are written for listeners that enjoy greek and roman history, but for enjoyment and not a rehash of high school latin class.
