The Last Great War of Antiquity

James Howard-Johnston

  • A full account of the last great war of the classical period, filling a significant gap in the history of warfare
  • Offers a global perspective, bringing the great nomad powers of the steppes, the sub-Roman kingdoms of the west, the Arabs, and the Chinese into the history of Persian-Roman relations in the early seventh century
  • Brings together scattered written sources to re-order and re-interpret key episodes in the war
  • An accessibly written narrative supported with both maps and colour illustrations
