In the early 5th Century, the fate of much of Europe and Asia depended on one man: Attila, known as the Scourge of God. He was one of the most feared warriors of all time, his name synonymous with insatiable ambition and savagery. But his intelligent leadership won the loyalty and admiration of many and when faced with humiliating defeat he made a decision few would have contemplated. Rallying his demoralised troops, he led them into the heart of the Roman Empire in a bid to seize the ultimate prize – the untenable dream that seemed beyond the reach of any barbarian: Rome itself.

Attila's attacks devastated the heartland of the Roman Empire, leaving it perilously fragile. It would never recover. Within a few years the last Emperor was deposed by Germanic tribes and Attila's name passed into history not as the Scourge of Rome but as the Scourge of God, the most feared – and frightening – warrior of all time.
