Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus lived from 10 B.C. to 54 A.D. Physically weak, a stammerer, Claudius was ignored. He survived because of his infirmities. Imagine his agenda when he became emperor!--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Written in the form of Claudius's autobiography, this book recounts the events of a scandalous era. Public morality deteriorated and corruption flourished. Barbarians found Rome ripe for the picking.
Robert Graves speaks to us from another era. He survived the trenches of WW I to create books of uncommon diversity and insight.
