Storyline

A thirteen hour series which focuses on the Germanic, Britannic and other barbarian tribal wars with Rome which ultimately led to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. This series is centered on the campaigns and battles with the barbarian tribes and extensive examinations of the reigns of little known Roman emperors and generals. The significance and structures of key barbarian tribes and the roles their leaders played are explored in detail. Territorial changes to the Roman Empire caused by unrelenting wars, plagues, mass starvation's and power struggles are presented in chronological historical context with extensive re-enactments. This series examines how the continuous wars with the barbarians and depletion of resources became a core cause of the Roman Empire's decline and eventual collapse. Written by Midge56

Short Point
2 August 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I feel the other 2 reviews are excellent but I want to make a short point about this documentary,

This documentary focuses on the chronological order of the empires Fall, it has 1 episode on the Roman republic days with the problems of northern Gallic tribes, and than it jumps to Caesar and than jumps again to the empire and than the documentaries main point is what happens during the empires days.

It explains the decay of the empire really well and I cant criticize it for leaving out so many cool facts, the this is already 13 hours long.

8/10, really well made, focuses well on the empire side of Rome and its decay,

I really felt sad when it got to the end.
