"On July 25, 1609, the sailors of the Sea-Venture scanned the horizon and spotted danger. Separated from their convoy of eight other vessels sailing from Plymouth westward to Virginia, England's first New World colony, they spied a tempest - or what the Carib Indians called a hurricane - scudding swiftly toward them. With "the clouds gathering thick upon us and the winds singing and whistling most unusually," wrote passenger William Strachey...." - Chapter One from The Many-Headed Hydra

"The churches of the Anglican Communion owe their particular expression of Christianity to the historic church in Britain and England, to which land the Christian faith came some time in the second century. The new religion spread rapidly from its center at Jerusalem, and the persecutions to which it was subjected had not only the effect of making it stronger but also of dispersing it more rapidly. Britain had been conquered by the Romans in 44 A.D. and Roman rule meant that the trade routes were kept open.

Enemy Of Rome

By Leonard Cottrell

This book is in good condition. There is minimal wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is no bumping and little fraying on the cover boards. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but there are no markings on the pages. "The consul had encamped in the evening on the side of the lake just within the present Roman frontier, and on the Tuscan side of Passignano; he had made a forced march, and had arrived at his position so late that he could not examine the ground before him. Early next morning he set forward again; the morning mist hung thickly over the lake and the low ground, leaving the heights, as is often the case, quite clear. Flaminius, anxious to overtake his enemy, rejoiced in the friendly veil which thus concealed his advance, and hoping to fall upon Hannibal's army while it was still in marching order and in columns encumbered with the plunder of the valley of Arno. He passed through the defile of Passignano and found no enemy; this confirmed him in his belief that Hannibal did not mean to fight. Already Hannibal's Numidian calvary were on the edge of the basin of the Tiber; unless he could overtake them speedily they would have reached the plain, and Africans, Spaniards and Gauls would be rioting in the devastation of the garden of Italy. In a R.A.F. hospital near Naples, in 1944, it is almost time for Lights Out. The Night Sister, making her inspection, consults her watch, Through the open windows which face north, distant flashes of gunfire suddenly silhouette the hills. Kesselring's army is retreating towards the Gustav Line, pressed hard by the advancing Allies, but not one of the figures under the mosquito nets looks up. Some are reading, some with hands clasped behind their heads, lie just thinking. A few are asleep...." - Chapter One from Enemy Of Rome
