In the “End of Empire” Christopher Kelly insightfully dissected the stereotypical image of Attila. The narrative was readable and effective. Christopher Kelly provided a brief, but excellent summary of Attila’s diplomatic, political, and military relationship with both the Western and Eastern Roman Empires. The failed Roman policies to contain the Huns, Vandals, and so forth were explained in an easy-to-understand way. In short, “End of Empire” explored the personalities, events, and forces which shaped the end of the Western Roman Empire.
