Hard as Nails in Ancient Rome

“Hard as Nails in Ancient Rome would be a great read for children who are showing interest in history without wanting to read a textbook on this subject matter.” Recommended. - CM Magazine, 10/15 "Comic illustrations and a game that lets readers gauge their own toughness add much needed levity to the text. A short history of the Roman Empire, a description of army life, and a time line bring context and order to the antic collection of biographies. A glossary and suggestions for further reading round out the volume. A fierce and fun look at history." - Booklist, 04/15
