In AD 453 Attila, with a huge force composed of Huns, allies and vassals drawn from his already-vast empire, was rampaging westward across Gaul (essentially modern France), then still nominally part of the Western Roman Empire. Laying siege to Orleans, he was only a few days march from extending his empire from the Eurasian steppe to the Atlantic. He was brought to battle on the Cataluanian Plain and defeated by a coalition hastily assembled and led by Aetius. Who was this man that saved Western Europe from the Hunnic yoke? While Attila is a household name, his nemesis remains relatively obscure.

Ian Hughes is the author of Belisarius: The Last Roman General (Pen & Sword, 2009) and Stilicho: The Vandal Who Saved Rome (Pen & Sword, 2010). Adrian Goldsworthy said his first book was 'packed with insights...a lively and detailed account'.Review:
"...a lively, often insightful account of the declining years of Roman power in the West which will be of interest to students of Roman history, the onset of the Dark ages and early Byzantine history. (NYMAS Review)
