Review of Rubicon by Tom Holland

Rubicon: The Last Years of the Roman Republic - Tom Holland

A great book that tells the story of the end of the Republic in Rome.  In many ways this book reads as a novel, and it covers all of the major players.  Ancient history is one of my weaker areas, and this book filled in many gaps for me in a way that was exciting to read.  I imagine that there is probably not a lot new here for someone really into Roman history, but for someone with only a basic knowledge, this is a great place to start.  Recommended and I look forward to his "sequel" that deals with the Emperors of Rome.
