The Holy Roman Empire
by James Bryce
Publisher: The Macmillan Company 1871
Number of pages: 460

Early Roman history is chiefly the detail of successful wars, aggressive and uncompromising, in which we see a fierce and selfish patriotism, an indomitable will, a hard unpitying temper, great practical sagacity, patience, and perseverance.
