    Paperback ã Count Belisarius Kindle Ö count ebok, belisarius epub, Count Belisarius PDF/EPUB For not by numbers of men nor by measure of body but by valor of soul is war to be decided BelisariusI love the story of Belisarius Did Robert Graves abuse history in writing this? I certainly hope so By the end however I didn't really care if Belisarius was as good as Graves made him out to be if the narrator Eugenius Belisarius' wife Antonia's manservant is unreliable or if Antonia slept with one man or many after marrying this 'Last Great Roman' Graves bends this

    Paperback ã Count Belisarius Kindle Ö count ebok, belisarius epub, Count Belisarius PDF/EPUBLate Roman historical fiction with a solid base in fact Belisarius was a roman general who served Justinian in the sixth century Graves uses Procopius as a base for his account and has the story told by of of Antonina's Belisarius's wife eunuchs Justinian is well drawn as the monster he was and there are entertaining accounts of early Christian heresies It's been a while since I've read about Monophysites and Arians Belisarius is portrayed as impossibly good and honourable and both of the main female characters Antonina and Theodora Justinian's wife spend much time scheming There is glut of battle scenes descriptions of campaigns seiges and the d

    Paperback ã Count Belisarius Kindle Ö count ebok, belisarius epub, Count Belisarius PDF/EPUBAlthough not quite the masterpiece that both of the Claudius novels are Count Belisarius is a great read and brings the period the 6th century CE to vibrant life The titular Count Belisarius is a devout Orthodox Christian general of the Eastern Roman empire during the reign of Justinian The book supposedly written by his wife's eunuch Eugenius follows his campaigns in Rome and Northern Africa chronicling the court intrigues and jealousies that prevent him from winning the glories that should have been his Throughout Belsarius remains a stoic Christian and loyal to the emperor who disdains him while envying his successWhat might make this book interesting to someone who is not particularly fascinated by late Roman military history although who isn't? is the rich characterization and the wealth of beli
