Founding Fathers free pdf Originally titled Children of the Wolf, Founding Fathers is Alfred Duggan's story of the reign of King Romulus, always keeping the details of the ancient legend in view, conveys an extraordinary sense of the realities of life in the eighth century B.C. Through the perspective of four individuals -- Marcus Aemilius, Publius Tatius, Perperna, and Macro -- the story of the founding of Rome is brought to life by a master of historical fiction. 'The quantity and quality of his work ...set a formidable standard. Duggan has imposed on all of his novels a unity of vision so compelling that whether we find ourselves in the Britain of the Saxon invasions or the Rome of the Triumvirate, we are principally conscious that we are in Duggan country ...' Times Literary Supplement 'Fascinating and convincing detail' Evening Standard

About Alfred Duggan

'There have been few historical imaginations better informed or more gifted than Alfred Duggan's' (The New Criterion) Historian, archaeologist and novelist Alfred Duggan wrote historical fiction and non-fiction about a wide range of subjects, in places and times as diverse as Julius Caesar's Rome and the Medieval Europe of Thomas Becket. Although he was born in Argentina, Duggan grew up in England, and was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. After Oxford, he travelled extensively through Greece and Turkey, visiting almost all the sites later mentioned in his books. In 1935 helped excavate Constantine's palace in Istanbul. Duggan came to writing fiction quite late in his life: his first novel about the First Crusade, Knight in Armour, was published in 1950, after which he published at least a book every year until his death in 1964. His fictional works were bestselling page-turners, but thoroughly grounded in meticulous research informed by Duggan's experience as an archaeologist and historian. Duggan has been favourably compared to Bernard Cornwell as well as being praised in his own right as 'an extremely gifted writer who can move into an unknown period and give it life and immediacy.' (New York Times).
