I just finished reading this book by Michael Curtis Ford, and it was an excellent read. It is about the rise of Julian through the eyes of his physician, and it is very thorough and well done. It is thick with intrigue and twists and I think that everyone on this board would enjoy it. Ford is something of a newcoming author, as this is his second book. His first was about Xenophon and the ten thousand! This guy can write and he chooses the very best topics. Highly recommended.
