500565) traveled with the army of Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian I as a military adviser, and chronicled the wars he foughtthis is the primary source today of information about the reign of Justinian I.
Here, in Books III and IV of the eight-volume History of the Wars, Procopius tells the story of the Vandalic War between the Eastern Roman Empire and the Vandals in North Africa.
Journeying by land and sea, Procopius regales us with vivid tales of battleincluding the capture of Carthage, the famous ancient city and the Vandal capital at the timeand of the intrigues and power struggles that dogged the emperor.
