    I purchased the first five volumes of Procopius s History of the Wars after reading a review somewhere, basically buying the volumes sight unseen, a stab in the dark Well, how right was that decision I have only read the first volume, Books 1 2, which covers the Persian Wars and I had a great time The book was so easy to read, full of interesting facts and stories of peoples and places long gone and lost to history What is so amazing about this book was that it was written sometime in the 540 s AD and translated in the early 1900 s I was a bit worr...

    Note I am giving all the History of the Wars books five stars because I loved them all, because I love Byzantine history, and because they were the main sources for my undergrad thesis I spent literally days reading through the pages of these books If you are interested in the wonder that was Byzantium you must read these all of them even buildings If you just like history, you may enjoy them, as Procopius was one of the world s great historians He told a good tale of war, politics, geography, mystery and gossip You will learn about the great plague pre dating the ...

    This volume contains the first two books of Procopius of Caesarea s Wars and, as with all Loeb editions, is a parallel text containing both the ancient Greek and English versions These two books focus on the early Byzantine wars with the Persians hence, sometimes being known as De Bello Persico and conflicts with other groups, such as the Hepthalites and the Lazi These books also contain Procopius famous accounts of the Nika Riots and the Justinianiac Plague.The English translation, despite being somewhat outdated 1914 , still holds up well for a genre like this, much of which is dry, technical details concerning geography and troop movements Although it is not a critical edition, it is an excellent start for scholars interested in the reign of Justinian Casual readers of military hist...

    If you re interested in Byzantine history, at some point, you have to read Procopius He s the main primary source on the 6th Century, and since he was close to the center of power in the empire, he has a lot of insight to offer.While Procopius account of Justinians reign and Belisarius campaigns are informative and entertaining, the translation in this edition leaves something to be desired This is a free Kindle edition, and the original was published in the 19th Century The language of the tran...

    It is books like this that make the discovery of the large Gobekli Tepi city complex not that remarkable to me In that region between the Roman Byzantine and Pesian empires rich and large cities, city states and even nations rose and fell rapidly during the constant warring between the two empires Procopius makes a lively telling of this Christian Age of the Roman Empire Romans called John, George, etc and the restless, ambitious, violent Persians that sensed the weakening state of this aged i...

    Interesting history I read the public domain Kindle version Procopius is a politician than a tactician, so this is a high level view of events no sense of the fighting skills and techniques used in the era
