The story of two men, friends and confidants, doomed to be on the opposing sides set during the fall of the mighty Roman Empire.Of Vitus Maximus, a Roman Commander who lost his Legion in battle to the Vandals and who, when taken hostage, became a confidant and teacher of the Vandal King Gaiseric and of his friendship with Theodoric, a Barbarian Prince and his student.  Through their eyes it reveals the story of how the Vandal tribes together with the Asian steppe riders the Alan’s, cut a bloody swathe through Europe, from Germania to Hispania, across the Mediterranean sea to North Africa where they forced the remains of the Roman Empire to make their desperate last stand.Years later Theodoric journeys to Rome to meet his old teacher just as King Gaiseric makes an audacious dash to the very gates of Rome where he meets his old confidant Vitus Maximus, now a rich and influential senator and a man who now must make his own fateful decision.'Barbarians Vs Rome' is a riveting, historical novel that follows the timeline of real events in late antiquity, containing vivid battle scenes, documenting an accurate use of weaponry, whilst revealing and comparing the wickedness of the Romans and character of the so-called Barbarians. An exciting and unique novel that combines the death of the Western Roman Empire with the story of a peoples struggle to survive, and of a cunning king who led his people against the mightiest Empire the world had ever seen.
