Masada, siege of (ad 73), one of the final acts of the Jewish revolt against Rome which began in ad 66. Masada, a high outcrop of rock by the Dead Sea, had been fortified in the mid-2nd century bc and again by Herod the Great in the 30s bc. It was seized early in the revolt by the Sicarii sect of alleged assassins led by Eleazar ben Yair. In ad 73, with Jerusalem captured and the rest of the province subdued, the Roman governor, Flavius Silva, laid siege with Legion X Fretensis. The account by the turncoat Jewish leader and historian Josephus claims to have been derived from the two women survivors, but is regarded as heavily embroidered (though confirmed in outline by archaeological excavation in the 1950s and 1960s). Over several months Silva constructed a siege wall, with towers and eight camps, right round the plateau, and then an assault ramp up which he rolled a massive siege tower equipped with a battering ram and artillery. The final assault, on the day after the defences had been breached and fired, revealed that the 960 defenders had taken their own lives.

"Britain and the War" was first published as a series of articles in the Revue de Paris from November 1915 to January 1916. It deals with a phase of England's war effort and life which may now be considered as closed. Some of the facts recorded here (for instance, what we say of England's first success against the German submarines) have even ceased to be true—though this too may be but a transient phase.

It was a war in which brother fought brother. Where battlefields became slaughterhouses. Where the astonishing technology and ingenuity of a country in the midst of an industrial revolution, was put to the task of making the most destructive killing machines the world had ever seen. More Americans were killed in the Civil War than in all other American wars combined. Ominously foreshadowing the horrors of the first World War, the guns of Civil War became the first truly modern weapons.
