Ammianus Marcellinus,J.C. Rolfe: Works: v.3

Works: v.3


Description

Ammianus Marcellinus, ca. 325ca. 395 CE, a Greek of Antioch, joined the army when still young and served under the governor Ursicinus and the emperor of the East Constantius II, and later under the emperor Julian, whom he admired and accompanied against the Alamanni and the Persians. He subsequently settled in Rome, where he wrote in Latin a history of the Roman empire in the period 96378 CE, entitled "Rerum Gestarum Libri XXXI." Of these 31 books only 1431 (353378 CE) survive, a remarkably accurate and impartial record of his own times. Soldier though he was, he includes economic and social affairs. He was broadminded towards non-Romans and towards Christianity. We get from him clear indications of causes of the fall of the Roman empire. His style indicates that his prose was intended for recitation. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Ammianus Marcellinus is in three volumes.

In November 1983, Soviet nuclear forces went on high alert. After months nervously watching increasingly assertive NATO military posturing, Soviet intelligence agencies in Western Europe received flash telegrams reporting alarming activity on U.S. bases. In response, the Soviets began planning for a countdown to a nuclear first Works: v.3 free ebook strike by NATO on Eastern Europe. And then Able Archer 83, a vast NATO war game exercise that modeled a Soviet attack on NATO allies, ended. The truce with the alien invaders begins to crumble, and this time the humans are gaining the upper hand against the goliath ETs. Gantz warrior Kei discovers that his beloved Tae still lives, and the race is on to save her before she and her alien protector are brought down together in the rapidly spreading destruction. But beyond Tae's desire to reunite with Kei is her hope that Kei can prevent a Gantz-led genocide of the aliens!
