Antipater’s Dynasty, Alexander The Great’s Regent And His Successors

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The legend of Alexander is so powerful that it places those who helped him achieve greatness, and those who tried to hold everything together after his death, in the anonimity of his shadow. The author has written a compelling review of Antipater and his family in a very readable style without losing the authority of scholarship. – Highly Recommended

General Sir Ralph Abercromby and the French Revolutionary Wars, 1792-1801

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The French Revolutionary Wars are far less well known than the Napoleonic Wars, the Generals of these earlier wars being equally less well known. The author presents a perceptive study of the French Revolutionary Wars and a British General who was probably robbed of deserved notability as he died in his moment of triumph. – Much Recommended
