Product Description

Book Description

From the author of Knight With Armour

Book Description

The Little Emperors was Alfred Duggan’s third novel and is celebrated among those who know his books well (and was given prominence, for instance, in an article on his work as a whole, up to that time, which appeared in The Time Literary Supplement of 22 May 1959). It has a fascinating subject – the little Emperors, or little Caesars, of the title are those who were proclaimed in Britain when the barbarians overflowed into Gaul and this island was isolated from the Empire. The story is told from the point of view of the head of the civil government in Britain. ‘Analogies with modern times suggest themselves but are never underlined. This is a work of historical reconstruction . . . it wins respect by a cunning accumulation of detail and by the illustration of Roman fortitude which the character of Felix provides.’ Times Literary Supplement

Format: Kindle Edition
The tribulations of Caius Sempronius Felix, the last Roman governor of Britain, as he tries to hold things together after the last Roman legions set sail for Gaul.

A tragi-comedy that illustrates how the bureaucracy of Rome finally strangled the life out of the Empire it was meant to support.

Alfred Duggan wrote a range of historical novels, often about people I had never heard of before. His books are interesting.
