Subtitle from cover: From the Republic to the Empire.

The rise of Rome, from provincial settlement to imperial power, is an epic story that reads like fiction rather than fact. Despite possessing few strategic advantages, Rome mastered Italy, and then looked outward. At its height, the Empire encompassed territories from the Rhineland to Egypt, Britain to Armenia. Over two million square miles fell within Rome's orbit.
