Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Sword of Attila begins with the fall of Carthage to the Vandals in AD 439. Rome has already been sacked by the Goths, Britain has been abandoned and the empire in the west is feeling the brunt of barbarian invasions laying waste to the provinces and leading to uneasy alliances with Germanic warlords. As the last remaining Romans flee Africa, a new and more ominous threat emerges, to Romans and their new allies alike - a power from the east like no other since the days of the Persian empire, the Hun army under their general Attila.
