Never, except in the battle of Cannae, had there been so destructive a slaughter recorded in our annals. Thus the Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus recorded the battle of Adrianople, which spelled the beginning of the end of the Roman Empire. Such a crushing Roman defeat by Gothic cavalry proved to the Empire, as well as to the Goths themselves, that the migratory barbarians were a force to be reckoned with. This book tells the story of the misguided Roman plans and the surprise attack of Gothic cavalry, and puts forward the most recent theories as to the true location of the battlefield.

Each book analyses a major battle or campaign, from outbreak to conclusion, taking stock of the opposing forces at crucial points in the fighting. Full colour 3-D birds-eye views, battle scenes and maps help you to follow the action. Books in the Osprey Campaign series contain up to six pages of battlescene artwork, and colour and black and white images throughout. They provide an important reference resource for history enthusiasts, academics and wargamers.
