#1 NEW RELEASE - Ancient Military History, AMAZON US, January 2023
'Boudicca, Spartacus, Arminius and Simon Bar-Kokhba join twenty less known heroes in this fascinating compendium of people who, having tasted Roman life, spat it out and turned against it in revolt, threatening the empire itself. They failed, but they failed magnificently. An absorbing journey into the long history of Rome and threats from within it faced to survive.' MARGARET GEORGE, New York Times bestselling author of The Confessions of a Young Nero and The Splendor Before the Dark.
'An enthralling read! In his selection of two dozen extensively researched case studies, Dando-Collins dissects rebellions that regularly changed the course of Roman history. In his writings he reveals the symptoms of revolution and charts the fates of charismatic freedom fighters, power hungry bureaucrats, and brilliant generals. He also reveals the brutality used to maintain this power. His words make these individuals real to the reader, beyond simple historical facts. In doing so, Dando-Collins provides brilliant insight into the way the Roman Empire dealt with the cancer of revolt.' DR. TERRY J. HANNAN, author of Heard, Healed, Helped: The Healing Power of Storytelling.
'Reading Rebels Against Rome was a pleasure, much like reading a novel... We can highly recommend it for those interested in the late Roman Empire, a fascinating subject of great importance to the Western World that reverberates through time to this day.' MAJOR DAN, History & Headlines, US.
'Stephen Dando-Collins never fails to provide a thrilling and educational read.' CAMERON REILLY, co-host of The Life of Caesar podcast series.
