Overview

Attila: King of the Huns: The Man and the Myth by Patrick Howarth

Although his grave’s location is still unknown, Attila the Hun’s place in history and legend is assured, though controversial. Dubbed “The Scourge of God” by early Christian chroniclers but known to his intimates for his clemency and wisdom, Attila ruled for only eight years in the middle of the fifth century. In that brief space he consolidated the Hun kingdom and threatened to conquer the empires of both Rome and Constantinople. Drawing on new archaeological findings and Hungarian sources unknown in the West, prolific biographer Patrick Howarth has created the first authentic life of Attila.

The title leads you to believe that the book is about Attila the Hun, but the book actually is a look at the peoples most threatened by the Huns. This book will NOT give you any information about Attila before he had an impact on the Romans. I was personally expecting a look at Attila, such as; where he grew up, something about his tactics, possibly some insight? This is a good book about the Romans after the empire split into a Western Roman Empire and an Eastern Roman Empire and how they reacted to 'barbarian' threat.
