- Romans at the Gates – The Siege of Jerusalem stands out as one of the most brutal examples of Classical Era total war since the fall of Carthage over 200 years earlier! In part 1 we discuss the lead up to the siege as well as the details of the attacking and defending forces.
- The Fight for the Walls – The Siege of Jerusalem continues to prove that the Jews are always one step ahead of the Romans with clever tactics and bold attacks! In part 2 we follow the legions as they push through two of the outermost defensive layers and almost face defeat.
- Assault on the Antonia Fortress – The Siege of Jerusalem has reached a new stage with the completion of the Roman wall of circumvallation. With this stranglehold in place, Titus now turns his full attention to the assault of the Antonia fortress!

- Last Stand of the Great Jewish Revolt– In 73 AD Masada, the impregnable mountain fortress in the Judaean desert, stood as the final holdout against the onslaught of Rome’s legions. The siege that followed would mark the final, bloody suppression of the Jewish revolt with an encounter whose awe inspiring remains can still be seen in the desert today!
