The Fall of the Roman Empire: The Military Explanation by Arther Ferrill

Rs 1,000.00

About the Book:

The primary cause of Rome’s fall was not internal weakness, as some historians have argued, but the deterioration of the Roman army. Arther Ferrill in his book, The Fall of the Roman Empire: The Military Explanation, believes twentieth-century sensibilities have clouded the issue of Rome’s fall discounting the military mechanism that made Rome a superpower in the ancient world. Ferrill persuasively argues against the position of Late Antique scholars who perpetuate the myth that the barbarians were innocent of the atrocities ascribed to them and that they positively influenced Roman civilization for the better, not the worse. Rome’s ability to make war made it great and its inability to maintain strong discipline, high morale, and capable leadership proved a fatal blow to the stability of the Empire. This was due, in part, by the added influx of barbarian tribes and their incorporation into the Roman army as allies. Barbarians were a cancer that contributed, according to Ferrill, to the incompetence of the Roman army and the downfall of the Empire. Bad habits crept into the army via the barbarians and spread quickly through the ranks. Ferrill is convinced ‘barbarization’ was a plague that exponentially quickened Rome’s fall. Those familiar with Ferrill’s other works will be pleased with this volume. It follows the general format of his other works and is supplemented with illustrations and maps. This book is an excellent introduction to Roman military history in the Late Empire.
