Good God, Just FALL Already!

Still at work on The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. I've only just gotten through Justinian. I'm just going to have to concede, admit that it's kicked my ass, and let it sit on the shelf for a while. I just can't bear to look at it anymore; I need a break.

I have to admit, I had to give up and read an annotated version that, thankfully, skimmed past Gibbon's endless digressions on the minutae of military history.
