The Jewish War is a book written by Josephus, a first-century Roman-Jewish historian. Divided into seven books, it opens with a summary of Jewish history from the capture of Jerusalem in 168 BC to the first stages of the First Jewish–Roman War. The next five books detail the unfolding of the war. It was written about 75 C.E., originally in either Aramaic or Hebrew though this version has not survived.
