Books…

GORDIAN III AND PHILIP THE ARAB: The Roman Empire at a Crossroads Dual biography of the emperors Marcus Antonius Gordianus (‘Gordian III’, reigned 238-244) and Marcus Julius Philippus Augustus (‘Philip the Arab’, reigned 244-249), focusing mainly on the political and military events during this crucial stage of the ‘Third Century Crisis’. Includes 75 color and black-and-white illustrations. The tumultuous ‘Year of the Six Emperors’ saw Gordian raised to the purple at just 13 years old, becoming the youngest emperor in the Empire’s history at a time when the borders were threatened by the powerful Sassanid Persians and the Goths, among others. Gordian died on a campaign against the Persians, either in battle or possibly murdered by his own men. Philip succeeded Gordian, made peace with Shapur I, and returned to Italy. His reign encompassed the spectacular celebration of Rome’s millennium in 248, but the wars in the Balkans and East together with crippling taxation led to mutinies and rebellions. Philip and his brother had until then fought successfully against the Persians and others, but this did not save Philip, who was killed by a usurper’s forces at the Battle of Verona in 249. $43.00 USD

NEVER GREATER SLAUGHTER: Brunanburh and the Birth of England Late in AD 937, four armies met in a place called Brunanburh. On one side stood the shield-wall of the expanding kingdom of the Anglo-Saxons. On the other side stood a remarkable alliance of rival kings – at least two from across the sea – who’d come together to conquer England once and for all. Brunanburh may not today have the fame of Hastings, Crecy or Agincourt, but those later battles, fought for England, would not exist were it not for Brunanburh. Generations later it was simply called the ‘great battle,’ but its location has been lost for centuries. Today, an extraordinary amateur and professional effort, uniting enthusiasts, historians, archaeologists, linguists and other researchers, may well have found the battle site of Brunanburh. This new book describes the discovery and delves into the battle. $28.00 USD

In the city, Confederate General Mansfield Lovell, a new commander, was thrust into the middle of command chaos.
