I bought the first book "Attila" since I had enjoyed the series "Spartacus" on Starz. This is the second book in this series and it is a well-written story. After 30 years of banishment, Attila returns to the Huns to claim his rightful place

I bought the first book "Attila" since I had enjoyed the series "Spartacus" on Starz. I like to learn about the men that brought so much trouble to the Roman empire, they really seem to be very interesting characters. One person found this helpful. After 30 years of banishment, Attila returns to the Huns to claim his rightful place. He spends most of the book getting the Huns ready to attack and destroy Rome.

Praise for the Attila series. He lives in Dorset and travels widely. Attila: the Judgement is the third novel in the Attila trilogy. Tom Holland, author of Rubicon and Persian Fire. Attila: The Judgement.

It is a story of two men: Attila the Hun and Aetius the Roman.

Portraits of Attila the Hun made after his death. Attila was the fierce 5th century leader of the barbarian group known as the Huns who struck fear in the hearts of the Romans as he plundered everything in his path, invaded the Eastern Empire and then crossed the Rhine into Gaul. For this reason, Attila was known as the Scourge of god ( flagellum dei ).

Attila has returned, his sentence served, to claim his kingdom

Attila has returned, his sentence served, to claim his kingdom. He will ride out at the head of no more than one hundred chosen men, driven by the ambition to unite all the feuding Hunnish and Scythian tribes under single banner and a single king. An impossible ambition. For Attila and his chosen men must triumph over blizzards and deserts, bandit kings and hidden mountain kingdoms, and furious battle with the terrible Kutrigur Huns. But all will flock to his banner, answer his call.

Attila (/ˈætɪlə, əˈtɪlə/; fl. c. 406–453), frequently called Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in March 453. He was also the leader of a tribal empire consisting of Huns, Ostrogoths, and Alans among others, in Central. He was also the leader of a tribal empire consisting of Huns, Ostrogoths, and Alans among others, in Central and Eastern Europe. During his reign, he was one of the most feared enemies of the Western and Eastern Roman Empires. He crossed the Danube twice and plundered the Balkans, but was unable to take Constantinople

tenics, mma, budokon or crossfit, he also has a tremendous amount of knowledge about health and nutrition in general. Chris Ka. May 9 at 5:35 AM. I know Attila from my training at AGOGE Athletic Club in Düsseldorf. and he is truly an ambitious and fascinating coach when it comes to Calisthenics, and any other gymnastic and mobility training !

Attila – born 15 August, 398. The son of Mundzuk, the son of Uldin, King of the Huns. Beric – a Vandal prince

Names mentioned in the text, with their modern equivalents. Characters marked with an asterisk were real historical figures. Attila – born 15 August, 398. Beric – a Vandal prince. Bleda (pronounced BLAY-da) – the older brother of Attila. Cadoc – the son of Lucius.

The dawn of the 5th century AD, and the Roman Empire totters on the edge of the abyss. Already divided into two, the Imperium is looking dangerously vulnerable to her European rivals. The huge barbarian tribes of the Vandals and Visigoths sense that their time is upon them.

But, unbeknownst to all these great players, a new power is rising in the East. A strange nation of primitive horse-warriors has been striking terror on border peoples for fifty years. But few realise what is about to happen. For these so called 'Huns' now have a new leader. And his name is Attila - 'the Scourge of God.'

Thus begins a saga of warfare, lust and power which brought the whole of the Christian world to its knees - and ended in blood on the fields of France. It is a story of two men: Attila the Hun and Aetius the Roman. One who wanted to destroy the world, and one who fought one final battle to save it...

I love historical fiction and had high expectations for Attila. I was not disappointed as I was held captive from page 1. Napier's style is not unlike that of Conn Iggulden, whereas historically it's factually but written in such a way to hook you to the story.
Highly recommend

I am of Hungarian descent and I proudly claim Attila as one of my own. I think he got a bad rap. History is the chronicles of what happened in the eyes of the victor. And most of what we know about Attila is from Roman history. I found it ironic that the Romans call Attila a barbarain. Seems to me the Romans fed Christians to the lions, had gladiators fight to the death for entertainment but....
There is no written history of the Huns theirs was an oral tradition. He was a man of his times and he reacted to circumstances as he saw fit.
He was fighting for the survival and freedom of his people.

This is a very interesting and highly entertaining story of the young Attila the Hun. It explains what happened while he was being held hostage in Rome that made him into the man feared by the mighty Roman empire. The story is being written by a "scribe" who sometimes gets too carried away with explanations and his own personal views of what Atilla is thinking/doing. The story finally got so interesting that I stayed up very late to finish it which means it was excellant! I don't believe it captured my interest as well as the Genghis Khan series did, but I would certainly recommend it (I have already loaned it out twice).

If you don't know anything about Attila the Hun then this is the series of books that you should read. William Napier captures the sense of what it must have been like to live during those troubling times. I bought the first book "Attila" since I had enjoyed the series "Spartacus" on Starz. I like to learn about the men that brought so much trouble to the Roman empire, they really seem to be very interesting characters. If you buy this book be sure and by the first one, "Attila" and the 3rd in the series "Attila, The Judgement".

Oral tradition is beautiful. The history of a people is put to song and dance. The story is passed from generation to generation via the spoken word. There is a problem though. The history dies out as the tribes die out. This is the problem with the story of Attila. We only have the account of the Romans which is slanted in their favor.
Read it and decide for yourself. Personally I think Attila got a bum rap

Flamekiller
I have the trilogy on Attila by Napier and all are excellent reads. I have read several articles on Attila as well as some other historical "faction" books. The story is fascinating how the Roman "civilization" and the Mongol hordes come to a final confrontation.

I ike the way this man writes. Sets up his story line and doesn't vary from it. At times, he becomes a little redundant. Like when is the main character here going to be free to do his thing. The plot moves logically, but is slow at times.
Will definitely read the next chapter in Attila's life.

This is the second book in this series and it is a well-written story. After 30 years of banishment, Attila returns to the Huns to claim his rightful place. He spends most of the book getting the Huns ready to attack and destroy Rome. The author effectively illustrates how Attila uses his cunning and ruthlessness to join all of the Hun tribes for his planned juggernaut against the weak and corrupt west. Attila develops an effective spy network, drills his rusty home tribe into fighting shape and outfoxes his fellow Hun tribal leaders. There is very little about his Roman nemesis Aetius in this book as the focus is on Attila. However, this is a great read. I had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait for the next installment.
