AT THE GATES OF ROME: The Fall of the Eternal City, AD 410
This work reveals the tale of Stilicho and Alaric and the series of hard-fought wars they waged. Stilicho bested his rival in battle but failed to capture the wily Alaric. Eventually a truce was declared. Alaric and his men would serve honorably in the Roman army, but it was a tentative peace, ultimately undone by the corruption at the heart of Rome. Color photos.
