Echoes From the Ancients | 1998
Documentary about the destruction of the city of Yodefat almost 2000 years ago. The people of Yodefat, in the region that is now Israel, battled against the Roman army for 47 days but the Romans prevailed. The few Yodefat residents who weren't killed were enslaved, with the exception of Flavius Josephus, commander of the Jewish forces. Josephus surrendered to the Romans and went on to record the sole history of the battle in his seven-volume "The Jewish War."
