Read full description of the books:
Unraveling the many mysteries surrounding the murder of Julius CaesarThe assassination of Julius Caesar is one of the most notorious murders in history. Two thousand years after it occurred, many compelling questions remain about his death: Was Brutus the hero and Caesar the villain? Did Caesar bring death on himself by planning to make himself king of Rome? Was Mark Antony aware of the plot, and let it go forward? Who wrote Antony's script after Caesar's death? Using historical evidence to sort out these and other puzzling issues, historian and award-winning author Stephen Dando-Collins takes you to the world of ancient Rome and recaptures the drama of Caesar's demise and the chaotic aftermath as the vicious struggle for power between Antony and Octavian unfolded. For the first time, he shows how the religious festivals and customs of the day impacted on the way the assassination plot unfolded. He shows, too, how the murder was almost avoided at the last moment.
A compelling history that is packed with intrigue and written with the pacing of a first-rate mystery, The Ides will challenge what you think you know about Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire.

Read information about the authorStephen Dando-Collins is an award-winning author whose 40th book will be published in 2017. His work includes children's novels and biographies, with the bulk of his books dealing with military history ranging from Greek and Roman times to American 19th century history and World I and Word War II, the next being THE BIG BREAK: The Greatest American WWII POW Escape Story Never Told. Many of his books have been translated into foreign languages including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Albanian and Korean. Considered an authority on the legions of ancient Rome, his most recent work on the subject, 2012's LEGIONS OF ROME, is the culmination of decades of research into the individual imperial legions. As he has with THE BIG BREAK, Dando-Collins aims to travel roads that others have not, unearthing new facts and opening new perspectives on often forgotten or overlooked aspects of history. Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman, author of On Combat and On Killing, describes Dando-Collins as 'a Cornelius Ryan (A Bridge Too Far), a Stephen Ambrose (Band of Brothers), for a new generation.'
