Description

Editorial Review
Author and historian Patrick J. Parrelli creates a spellbinding, historically exacting work of creative nonfiction in 'The Octavian Chronicles’, the eBook version of 'Octavian: Rise to Power'. An adventurous undertaking, this meticulously researched epic is cross-referenced with the ancient writings of Appian, Suetonius, Plutarch, and Dio. After Caesar is assassinated in 44 BC and Octavian learns that Caesar adopted him as his son in his will, he sets out on a path of vengeance that doesn’t end until he takes his place. With engaging subplots that chronicle key figures like Antony, Cleopatra, Cicero, Brutus, Cassius, Agrippa, Sextus Pompey, and Herod the Great, this eBook ‘chronicles’ with in-depth insight the military battles of Mutina, Philippi, Perusia, Naulochus, and Actium and serves as possibly the most readable narrative to unravel the complex story of how Octavian came to be Caesar Augustus, Rome’s first emperor.

The titles of the twelve Octavian Chronicles chapters are; Assassination - 44 BC; Cicero - 44 BC; Battle of Mutina - 43 BC; Second Triumvirate - 43 BC; Battle of Philippi - 42 BC; Battle of Perusia - 41 BC; Treaty of Brundisium - 40 BC; Treaty of Misenum - 39 BC; Battle of Naulochus - 36 BC; Donations of Alexandria - 34 BC; Battle of Actium - 31 BC; Suicide - 30 BC.

These chapters are also available as individual  eBooks.

The 700 page paperback edition entitled 'Octavian: Rise to Power' by author Patrick J. Parrelli is available in a single volume.
