Ic need in order to win battles and improve the life of individuals Attila th Hun Leader of the Barbarian HordesBy Sean Stewart PriceBiography128 pagesThis book is about the life of the famous conueror Attila the Hun and if he really was wicked The book begins with his childhood Attila was a memeber of the Huns a nomadic Okinawa: The Last Battle of World War II group of people that lived north of the eastern and western Roman empires During the time period it was common for different kingdoms to trade young princes as hostages with each other and Attila was traded to the Romans Most of the princes would eventually convert to their captor s culture and language but Attila stayed strictly a Hun Finally it was Attila s time to come back to to the Hun Kingdom as a noble In 434 Attila s brother died and the empire was split into the hands of Attila and his relatives The Huns and other tribes surrounding the Romans often raided their villages Attila made an agreement with the Romans to not attack as long as the Romans payed a certain amount ofold each year However promises meant nothing to Attila Attila attacked the Romans and rampaged throughout Europe avoiding the heavily fortified cities Eventually the Huns reached Constantinople the capital of the east Romans The east Roman kingTheodosius surrendered and agreed to pay The GI Bride gold in tribute each year For a short period of time there was peace between the Romans and the Huns But the Romans wererowing short on their tribute payments Once again Attila attacked the Romans but this time Constantinople was saved During this time the East Roman emperor constructed huge walls around the city This succesfully prevented the Huns from entering Attila left Constantinople unable to penetrate through the cities strong walls Later the West Roman emperor s sister Honoria asked Attila to help her defeat her brother Attila agreed and sent his army into the province of Gaul in the West Roman Empire Attila succesfully attacked most of Gaul but was defeated by his former friend A tius in the battle of the Catalaunian Plains Attila was once again defeated and forced to retreat back into the Hun homeland Later the Hun king made his last invasion of the Romans In 452 Attila attacked the Italian peninsula the heart of the West Roman Empire He and his armies moved very fast across the land and eventually reached the edges of Rome The Pope Leo personally went to talk Attila out of advancing and legend has it that Attila was so honored by the pope s presence that he withdrew This probably isn t completely true the Pope probably also offered a large amount of money Attila the Hun withdrew and led his armies back to the Hun capital Attila was married a short time after the invasion but died the day after his marriage choking on his own blood during his sleep Attila may have died but his legacy was still alive Many people in Hungary today honor Attila and name people after him I think that this book is a really ood non fiction biography about the person that may have started the decline of the Roman Empire It has a lot of information and many interesting facts about Attila the Hun As a reader this book was easier to understand because unlike other biographies it included a lot of maps paintings and drawings Overall I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 A Wicked History Attila the

hatred for the romans rew he watched them looking for weaknesses in the roman empire being the east and the west romans were constantly arguing My favorite part was when it explained that he killed his own brother to ensure that he would be king and his future kinsman I also find it kind of funny that he died choking on his own blood DecemberAttila the HunSean Stewart Price Are you ready to hear

a campaign in order to ameliorate the tools and euipment of the Hun s army and personal living of Attila Secondly Attila was able to The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) gainradual momentum against the Byzantine Empire as he took command of considerable trivial villages As a matter of fact Attila caused destructive acts upon small villages as they were made an easier prize for the Huns whose reputation for brutality spread as they advanced Price 51 Further the redoubtable Attila ave specific instructions as he reuired for his army and disciples to collect any accommodation or sources of currency that could have potential utility for their empire s perspective In conclusion the earthuake that occurred in Constantinople enabled Attila and his army to take advantage of the numerous flaws present Attila s brilliant career at the head of the Hun Empire was characterized by a brilliant tactical mindset lust for wealth and Constantinople state after oing through a destructive earthuake Firstly Price emphasized how Attila s cruel manner to act toward the villagers conuered near Constantinople allowed him to Arabian Challenge gain momentum and confidence On the other hand one could comprehend how money and power were the reasons that inspired the Hun s against Constantinople considering it was a premier trade center Further Price clearly emphasized how crucial theeographical catastrophes upon Constantinople had on the Hun s conuest plans and use of tools In fact Attila uickly demanded for his army to reach the Eastern Roman Empire as rapidly as possible to avoid allowing the Byzantines to reconstruct the city of Constantinople in order for the Huns to potentially capture the city One could see that similar events occur in present society in a subtle manner as violence is not involved In fact money is principally ained using intellectual intelligence and sense of commerce Thus one could see how Attila success was enerated by a series of advantageous factors Wednesday April 29 2015Ambition and a slight amount of confidence in oneself is a huge factor contributing to the success and thoughts of one individual Attila often had interactions with numerous rulers coming from external nations Firstly Attila was perceived as a person owning multiple

care Price 64 Moreover Attila regularly ifted the majority of his wealth to individuals in which shared a long a strong relationship which were beneficial strategically for the Huns Attila had the capacity to extort considerable wealth with rather banal acts For instance Attila repeatedly sent threats or blackmails by the use of his messengers to opposing nations or empire in which stated that the Huns would possibly launch an attack if old or valuable American Literature Student Text goods were notiven to them Attila often exercised this method against the Byzantines who were largely intimidated by the organization and skills present in the Hun army Therefore one could see how Attila s well thought acts and behavior are principally caused by the interactions he owns with other influential rulers The Cheyenne: A Sweet Historical Romance geographical location enormously contributed to Attila s conuest desires as well as the affinities and ties he owned with external nations The lowering of the regime of both the Western and Eastern Roman empire left an opportunity to launch a deadly attack on areas in which the Romans ruled As a matter of fact Attila envisioned numerous possibilities but perceived low resistance or military power in Gaul which was under Western Romans rule For example this conuest was purposely made to create a diversion as well as being extremely advantageous due to how close the Hun Empire is to Gaul Second of all Attila purposely provided a limited amount of supplies for his troops involving material such as food weaponry clothing and financial aid The motive for the Huns scarce supplies was due to looting and the conuering of towns in which a significant amount ofoods and weaponry collected as they went Price 78 Therefore one

Cummings: The Art of His Poetry great amplitude on the outcome of the battle knowing that the Hun sreatest military strength is archery and horseback riding Nevertheless Attila uickly realized how laborious and complex the conflict was against the Romans and Visigoths Yet Attila was unable to realize how Black Wings of Cthulhu great of an opportunity the death of Theodoric the king of the Visigoths had upon the ability to conuest the lands of the West Roman Empire and Visigoths For instance the Visigoths were completely demoralized leaving the possibility for the Huns to launch a deadly assault on Western Romans that could have changed the course of history as the Huns would have extended their empire throughout western EuropeInstead the Huns retreated eastward to regroup Price 97 Therefore Attila s lack of confidence has caused him to retreat toward the east has prevented him of conuering and overthrowing the Western Roman Empire Theeographical location on which dispute occurs might have strategical and political repercussions Attila desired to pulverize and conuer numerous areas of the Western Roman Empire however the alliance the Romans owned with the Visigoths complicated Attila s conuering plans Firstly Attila was able to optimize his chances against the Romans and Visigoths by rationally choosing the battlefield in which the Huns would face the Roman and Visigoth army For instance Attila ingeniously knew that the military strengths of the Huns would be exploited and expressed in the Catalaunian Fields as Attila needed a flat area where his archers could Maneuver On Horseback Price 88 on horseback Price 88 the Romans extensive and meticulous examination of the battlefield caused astonishment and disturbance toward the Huns For example the West Roman and Visigoth army was able to attain the summit first as a manner to organize troops and intimidate the Huns Therefore one could comprehend how history and events may be determined by the location and usage of a location The presence a leader and the influence one has on others are very defining on his capabilities and political power Attila made simple but cunning military strategies that ensured his success during the conuest campaign against the Western Romans In fact Attila enabled his army to perpetually move by simply bypassing most fortified cities and lands as he wanted to reach the heart of Gaul before Aetius is bale to organize the city wall and his troops Secondly the Hun s Girl on the Verge great diversity in their people and armies allowed others to not perceive differences from on another due to Attila sreat leadership and Women and Alcohol in a Highland Maya Town: Water of Hope, Water of Sorrow Revised Edition guiding abilities For instance Attila was able to unify the different ethnicroup present in his army by creating a common oal and letting know who was in charge Price 90 More importantly Attila had the ability to motivate his troops by simply making an inspirational speech before each battle in which he discusses all the wealth land and power that could be potentially acuired if the outcome of the battle was in the Hun s favor Thus one could understand how the uidance of an individual is a bas.
