Historie 106

Ughh... Maybe I should just translate Historie every two chapters as well.

Some Thoughts on the Roman Republic's Weakneses

It's been close to a year since I last wrote on a topic from European history, so with my 5-part post on Classical Chinese done, I think now's a good time. And since I just began translating Ad Astra, I'll go mainstream and talk about Rome for once. But rather than talk about how strong Rome was thanks to its military, I'm going to talk about how weak the Roman Republic was as a state and how this contributed to its fall. Just a heads-up, this post is really just a book summary in disguise which — I know, I know — is a lazy thing to do. But I do think the book brings a perspective many supposed Romaboos who only ever read Osprey military books don't quite seem to be aware of.

Historie v10

So I promised this a looong time ago, but I finally got around to it and spent a weekend on it. This is the tankoban release of Historie v10. For people who don't know, there are mainly two differences between the tankoban and magazine versions. One is the slightly different chapter arrangement. This volume covers from the second half of chapter 89 to the end of chapter 97, but due to the different chapter arrangements, they are listed as chapters 81-87 in the tankoban version. The second difference, and the more important one, is that all the incomplete artwork is finished up for the tankoban release. Three examples are posted below.

Alright, enjoy the volume then! If you spot any typos, let me know, and I'll fix them in about a week's time.
