Stephen Dando-Collins won the Silver Award for Biography in the 2020 Indie Awards in the US for CYRUS THE GREAT; He is the award-winning author of 45 books, including biographies, works on ancient and modern history, and children's novels. The majority of his works deal with military history ranging from Greek, Persian and Roman times to American, British and Australian 19th century history and World War I and World War II. Many of his books have been translated into foreign languages including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Albanian and Korean. He has also won and been shortlisted for several literary awards in his native Australia. Considered an authority on the legions of ancient Rome, his 2010 book LEGIONS OF ROME has been called the definitive work on Rome's imperial legions, and was the culmination of decades of research into the individual legions. With all his books, Dando-Collins aims to travel roads that others have not, unearthing new facts and opening new perspectives on often forgotten or overlooked people and aspects of history. In 2021 he has two new releases on Roman history, CONQUERING JERUSALEM: The Roman Campaign to Crush the AD 66-73 Jewish Revolt, and CONSTANTINE AT THE BRIDGE: How the Battle of the Milvian Bridge Created Christian Rome, both published in the US and UK by Turner Publishing.Read more Read less
