The battle of the Catalaunian Fields was Rome’s last great battle. Gathering together an alliance of Goths, Alans, Franks and others, the Roman general Aetius defeated Attila’s Huns on the plains of Champagne near Troyes.
Despite the Roman victory, the Western Empire would not survive for more than 15 years following the battle, whilst the Huns, shattered and demoralised, would meet their downfall against a coalition of German tribes soon after.
Drawing on primary sources, this book, pinpoints the battlefield location. It is lavishly illustrated with 2D and 3D maps, photographs and colour images.
