Lindsay Powell's book, The Bar Kokhba War AD – tells the story of the last Jewish revolt over the Roman Empire. Osprey Publishing, either through lack of willing writers, or trying to shy away from the tricky subject of Jewish history, does not have a lot of titles on this/5. After the Jewish rebels defeated Cestius and the Twelfth Legion, Emperor Nero turned to a reliable old soldier, Flavius Vespasian, to conduct the war against Judaea. After three years Jerusalem would still be unconquered, but Nero would be gone and Vespasian would have achieved the throne of the Empire.

The First Jewish–Roman War (66–73 CE), sometimes called the Great Revolt (Hebrew: המרד הגדול ‎ ha-Mered Ha-Gadol), or The Jewish War, was the first of three major rebellions by the Jews against the Roman Empire, fought in Roman-controlled Judea, resulting in the destruction of Jewish towns, the displacement of its people and the appropriation of land for Roman military use Location: Judea (Roman province).

  The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66–70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for an ostensibly Roman audience. The Jews' Great Revolt against Rome in 66 C.E. led to one of the greatest catastrophes in Jewish life and, in retrospect, might well have been a terrible mistake.. No one could argue with the Jews for wanting to throw off Roman rule. Since the Romans had first occupied Israel in 63 B.C.E., their rule had grown more and more almost the beginning of the Common Era, Judea was ruled.

Susan Sorek's book, The Jews against Rome is somewhat of a summary account of Josephus' own book on the subject. As a result, this book doesn't wander too far off from what Josephus wrote. The book also appears to be a semi-biography on Josephus as by: 2. The book "The Jews Against Rome" by Susan Sorek is an interesting account of the uprising in Palestine between AD.

If you haven't read anything about this period of history before then this is a good book to get you started as it explains who Josephus is, talks about his Histories and gives the reader a good overview of the historical situation in this region before the revolt/5.

The Jewish revolt was not inspired by any ideological objection on the part of the Jews toward Rome, nor any Roman anti-Semitism: instead a variety of underlying causes helped spark the revolt including social tensions, the divisions amongst the ruling class, the rise of banditry and poor harvests, and, perhaps most significantly, the apocalyptic storm brewing over 1st century Palestine.5/5(1).

Sorek writes that scholars have concluded that the Jewish War, culminating in the siege of Jerusalem and destruction of the Temple, was the major event in Roman military history.

The war demanded a massive concentration of forces and was the longest siege in the Imperial period, lasting five months. It invol men supplied by four kings to achieve a victory.5/5(1). Strangely, this book turned out to be a good account and explanation of the great Jewish revolt of AD against Rome, and its context, despite the author's biases.

As some other reviewers have mentioned, the author uses a Marxist framework to analyse the revolt, making it into some kind of class war of the "have not" against the "haves".Cited by: 2. The Jewish Revolts Against Rome, A.D. 66– A Military Analysis - Kindle edition by Bloom, James J.

Primary information regarding the subsequent Diaspora Revolt (A.D. ) and the Bar Kochba Rebellion (A.D. The Jews didn’t need much reason to revolt against their Roman overlords, but the immediate cause for this outbreak of violence seems to have been a pledge by Roman Emperor Hadrian to have the Temple rebuilt, only to change his mind - and order a temple to Jupiter be erected on the Temple Mount instead.
