9780425202722: The Night Attila Died: Solving the Murder of Attila the Hun

Before Saddam, before Hitler, before Napoleon...
...there was Attila, the reviled leader of the Huns who cut a bloody swath of death across fifth-century Europe. Yet, for all his barbarian savagery, it took a mere nosebleed to end his life. At least that's how history has recorded it-a curious footnote to a legacy rife with violence.
But history happens to be wrong.
Michael Babcock, a noted philologist and recognized authority on the life and legend of Attila, makes a stunning revelation: "The Scourge of God" died as he lived...
Attila was murdered.
Using careful analysis of textual and historical evidence, Babcock lays out his argument like a skilled trial lawyer. He puts the reader in the jury box as he presents the evidence pointing to an assassination plot and subsequent cover-up, orchestrated by Attila's chief rival, Marcian, emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire.

From the Author:

The product of some twenty years of research, "The Night Attila Died" is not just an intriguing detective story about "what happened" to one of the most feared men in history. This book is also about how we know what we know about the past -- and how we know it.

From the Inside Flap:

"If Sherlock Holmes had been an academic, this is the kind of detective work he would have done. Brilliant and compelling!" -- Bob Brier, Ph.D., author of "The Murder of Tutankhamen"
