MAXIMINUS THRAX: From Common Soldier to Emperor of Rome
Said to stand more than seven feet tall, Maximinus was surely one of Rome's most extraordinary emperors. The first common soldier ever to assume the imperial throne, he later campaigned across the Rhine and Danube until a rebellion erupted in Africa and the senate engaged in civil war against him. Pearson recounts the life and times of this Thracian giant. 16 pages of photos.
