THE FOUR RIVERS OF PARADISE

The sack of Rome is schoolboy knowledge, but what of the people who lived through it? And the fate of the general, Stilicho the Vandal, who halted Alaric for a time, was falsely accused and died at the order of the emperor? A youth sent out from Gaul became an intimate of Stilicho's household and it is his story, against this background, that makes the period come alive. Good historical recreation.
