From the PublisherPraise for Attila
"One could not wish for a better storyteller or analyst than John Man. . . . His Attila is superb, as compellingly readable as it is impressive in its scholarship: with his light touch, the Huns and their king live as never before. . . . There is something fascinating and new on every page."
—-Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Stalin
"Racy and imaginative . . . puts flesh and bones on one of history's most turbulent characters. . . . The rise and fall of Attila, as meteoric and momentous as Napoleon's or Hitler's, makes for fascinating reading in any form."
—-The Guardian (UK)
"This bright, engaging, and breezy book . . . suits the tenor of our times."
—-The Times (London)
"John Man's account . . . sympathetically and readably puts flesh and bones on one of history's most turbulent characters."
