Description

Explore historic battles and military events that had a lasting impact on the people and cultures of the world. Important sieges of the ancient and modern world are included, and their impact on subsequent regional or world history is discussed. The series reflects an international approach, including sieges from North America, Russia, and the Near and Far East. In 72 A.D. the Romans began a siege of the Jewish Zealots at their mountaintop fortress of Masada. In the final hours, faced with certain annihilation, these Zealots made their ultimate challenge to Roman rule by taking their own lives rather than submitting to Roman authority.
