The history that I hope to get into soon is Roman history, (as I may have said before.) I’ve found many books on Roman history which look interesting. One book is the Defeat of Rome: Crassus, Carrhae, and the Invasion of the East. Apparently it’s about a Roman campaign in the east where Proconsul Marcus Crassus and 36,000 legionaries were decisively defeated by the Parthians. It’s not a campaign that’s been covered much. Most historians have focused on the civil war between Julius Caesar and Pompey. It sounds like an interesting book, so I hope to get it at some point. But one thing that needs to be done is I need to read Rome and Carthage and Rome at War with Rome. One of those books is on the Punic Wars and the other is on one of Rome’s civil wars. So hopefully sometime I can get into the study of Roman history, and hopefully it’s interesting.
