History of the Jewish rebellion against Rome 66 C.E. to 73 C.E. Includes a new introduction, notes and appendices by E. Mary Smallwood
Excavations at Masada corroborate some details of Josephus' history, which so grimly evidences the turbulence of the beginning of the Common Era. In a war which was sullied by every kind of treachery and atrocity, Josephus, though a Jewish governor of Galilee, sided with the Romans. His unique account of the war and of such figures as Herod, the Agrippas, Pontius Pilate and Vespasian remains an important source-book for the period and place.
