The Jewish War, Josephus's eye-witness account of the revolt of 66-70 C.E. against Roman rule, recounts the outbreak of war; the campaign in Galilee--under his command--including the siege of Jotapata; the strategic isolation of Jerusalem, and finally the fall of the city to Titus and destruction of the Temple in 70; the return of the conquerors to Rome in triumphal procession; and the suicidal stand at Masada. This vivid narrative, in polished Greek style, preserves valuable sources and tells us much about Roman military tactics.
