Product description

Conflict and war were inevitable as Rome sought to expand its territory further across the globe, and civilizations fought for the right to reign over their own homelands. Rome's conquests provoked migration and movement, and those uprooted fought to found new settlements. Despite interludes of peace and compromise, war was never far from the horizon. This book examines the lives of the principal barbarian cultures who sought to defy Rome's might, and who, by the end of the 5th century AD, had finally defeated and dispatched the Roman Empire.
