In AD 70, after a war which had flared sporadically for four  years, three Roman legions under the future Emperors Vespasian  and his son Titus, surrounded, laid siege to, and eventually  devastated the city of Jerusalem, destroying completely the  magnificent Temple which had been built by Herod only 80 years  earlier. This book narrates and explains this  titanic struggle, showing why Romes interests were served by this  policy of brutal hostility, and how the first generation of  Christians first distanced themselves from its Jewish origins and  then became increasingly hostile to Jews as their influence  spread within the empire.
