it was ok

Covers the first 365 years of Roman history. The first book covers the founding of the city and the Roman monarchy through 7 kings. Books 2 through 5 cover the first part of the Roman Republic and are basically a year-by-year summary of battles with neighbors of Rome in Italy or the political conflicts between the patricians and the plebians. Although interesting to read it from the ancient Roman perspective, for a general early history of Rome, I'd suggest something more modern.
