Si Sheppard graduated this year with a Ph.D. in political science from Johns Hopkins University. He currently teaches American Government at Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York. This is his second Osprey title in a projected trilogy detailing the fall of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Empire.
"This book by Si Sheppard covers the campaigns of Octavian and the other two members of the Triumverate that led up to the final battle at Actium. We get a good look at the opposing commanders through the eyes of those who wrote about them during this time and how their armies performed. The rest of the book is on the preface battles on land in Greece that led to the final sea battle at Actium and the results of that battle. Throughout the book are the illustrations of Christa Hook as well as photographs of artifacts of the time and the actual location of the battle field, so to speak. This all melds together to make a superb book on the subject. One that I found both interesting and entertaining. I'm sure you will as well and I can easily recommend it to you." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (August 2009)
