    PDF/EPUB Sulla: A Dictator Reconsidered ePUB Ï Sulla: A µ african american.co sulla: pdf, dictator pdf, reconsidered download, Sulla: A epub, Sulla: A Dictator Reconsidered KindleThis is a detailed but disappointing read It is not a balanced account of Sulla's life The author's bias is embarrassing at times A typical example of this is in chapter 8 which covers one of the defining moments in Sulla's career his march on Rome The choice of language illustrates this anyone opposing Sulla must have been deranged or so blinded by their own egos whereas Sulla was obliged to fight for his consulship but he responded to the situation that had been forced upon him valiantly Anyone opposing Sulla is automatically suspect and Sulla is always completely blamelessI note that the author is also a big fan of Ric
