Three volumes in a special two volume Leonaur edition,

The scholarship of Felix Dahn on matters concerning the Roman Empire-particularly as it touched upon the lands and people of what is now Germany-is well known and of the highest order. Dahn made several successful forays into the world of fiction, combining his academic knowledge with tales of adventure and drama set within the ancient world he knew so well. However, it is widely accepted that his magnum opus of the times of the Goths and Romans is the monumental, A Struggle for Rome, published originally in three volumes. Leonaur is pleased to re-present this classic work of fiction in its entirety within two substantial volumes for your reading pleasure. The narrative of the story is presented in sequential chapters throughout the entire work so this two volume edition in no way compromises the original. The setting for the story is principally between the years 526 to 553 A.D. Rome has long been divided into the Western and Eastern Empires. Justinian rules the Byzantines of the east and the Rome of the west is now ruled by the Ostrogoths. Their king, Theodoric has just died and there are those who plan to take advantage of the ensuing period of instability. Justinian plans to reintegrate the Western Empire-by force-into a great new empire, but there are Goths who seek to maintain their hold on Italy by taking power for themselves. A third force has also arisen, these are the traditional Romans who wish to rebuild the greatest city state the world has ever known so that it once again becomes great and free of the influence of the people of the north or the east. The stage is thus set for an engrossing tale of intrigue, violence and high drama on and off the field of conflict. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket.
