About Author

  1. Procopius of Caesarea was born in the latter years of the fifth century at Caesarea in Palestine He originated from the land owning provincial upper class and, like Zosimus, became a civil servant As early as A.D 527, before the emperor Justin s death, Procopius became counsellor, assessor, and secretary to Belisarius, whose fortunes and campaigns he followed for the next twelve or fifteen years Small wonder he became very knowledgeable of military affairs through this service He has long been respected as a historian of the emperor Justinian s wars, and in fact he is reckoned the greatest of the later Greek historians Procopius was finally raised to the dignity of an illustrius, and died not earlier than A.D 562.

One thought on “History of the Wars, Vol I: Books 1-2 (Persian War)

  1. I purchased the first five volumes of Procopius s History of the Wars after reading a review somewhere, basically buying the volumes sight unseen, a stab in the dark Well, how right was that decision I have only read the first volume, Books 1 2, which covers the Persian Wars and I had a great time The book was so easy to read, full of interesting facts and stories of peoples and places long gone and lost to history What is so amazing about this book was that it was written sometime in the 540 s [...]


  2. Note I am giving all the History of the Wars books five stars because I loved them all, because I love Byzantine history, and because they were the main sources for my undergrad thesis I spent literally days reading through the pages of these books If you are interested in the wonder that was Byzantium you must read these all of them even buildings If you just like history, you may enjoy them, as Procopius was one of the world s great historians He told a good tale of war, politics, geography, m [...]


  3. If you re interested in Byzantine history, at some point, you have to read Procopius He s the main primary source on the 6th Century, and since he was close to the center of power in the empire, he has a lot of insight to offer.While Procopius account of Justinians reign and Belisarius campaigns are informative and entertaining, the translation in this edition leaves something to be desired This is a free Kindle edition, and the original was published in the 19th Century The language of the tran [...]


  4. It is books like this that make the discovery of the large Gobekli Tepi city complex not that remarkable to me In that region between the Roman Byzantine and Pesian empires rich and large cities, city states and even nations rose and fell rapidly during the constant warring between the two empires Procopius makes a lively telling of this Christian Age of the Roman Empire Romans called John, George, etc and the restless, ambitious, violent Persians that sensed the weakening state of this aged imp [...]

  7. Interesting history I read the public domain Kindle version Procopius is a politician than a tactician, so this is a high level view of events no sense of the fighting skills and techniques used in the era


  8. This is a great look at the Roman Persia conflicts in the 500s This volume is a fascinating peek at the Middle East shortly before the rise of Islam The translation is easy to follow, I couldn t put it down.
