4.0 out of 5 stars Atilla the Hun - John Mann, 5 Oct 2006
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Attila The Hun: A Barbarian King and the Fall of Rome (Paperback)
I was in two minds whether to buy this book, having read Paul Cassidy's review, which pretty much summed up how I felt after reading the author's Ghenghis Khan. I did buy it, however, and am glad I did. Apart from an overlong account of the resurrection of mounted archery, John Mann successfully paints a picture of Atilla, the Huns, the decaying Roman empire and an age that has left little by way of contemporary written history. He does this in a readable narrative style, clearly points out where the facts are thin and speculation needed, and debunks many of the myths that grew over the centuries following Atilla's death and are accepted by many today as fact. I enjoyed reading it.
