I've not read any Tom Holland, but if I understand you correctly, Darragh, it
sounds like James Burke is very similar in his approach.

I've decided I am going to take my baseball and go home, and in the process write off Wikipedia.

John, are you talking about James Lee Burke? Because his crime novels
don't seem to fit what you're saying.

Well, if you haven't read Tom Holland yet, I suggest you get cracking!
Rubicon is his first book, and it relates in bravura fashion the
downfall of the Roman Republic; Persian Fire is his second and most
recent book, and it offers a tour de force retelling of the origins of
the Persian Empire, the first world empire, and its battles against Athens,
Sparta and the rest of Greece for the West. Read them both.
