Product Description

Product Description

In the third book of the critically acclaimed Marching With Caesar series, Titus Pullus and his 10th Legion are still in the thick of the maelstrom that follows after the assassination of Gaius Julius Caesar. As part of the army jointly commanded by the young Gaius Octavian and Marcus Antonius, Titus and his comrades avenge the death of their general Caesar at Philippi, with the defeat of the last of The Liberators, Brutus and Cassius. When the two triumphant generals divide their victorious army between them, the 10th Legion is fated to serve under the command of the older Triumvir, Marcus Antonius, who leads them on a campaign into the wilds of Parthia. Throughout all of the trials and amid the danger that is inherent in this endeavor, Titus must also steer a course through the increasingly turbulent and dangerous waters as the last two remaining rivals for the ultimate prize of being the First Man in Rome move ever closer to a final confrontation, one in which every Roman in the Legions must choose a side. At stake is not just his own reputation and life, but the fate of his beloved 10th Legion!

Marching With Caesar-Antony and Cleopatra Part I-Antony is the first of the two-volume Marching With Caesar-Antony and Cleopatra.

Critical Acclaim for Marching With Caesar-Antony and Cleopatra: Part I-Antony

Peake has become a master of depicting Roman military life and action, and in this latest novel he proves adept at evoking the subtleties of his characters, often with an understated humour and surprising pathos. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Laurel in his crown 20 April 2013
By Trajan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
Once again Ron Peake has added to his laurels with an outstanding sequel, Antony and Cleopatra I.
As with the previous two books, the authors' attention to detail and knowledge of the everyday workings of a Roman (now Antonian) Legion is to be commended.

I won't give a general synopsis, as most reviewers have already done so, I would rather turn to the further character development of Titus Pullus.

The author has an in depth understanding of the qualities needed in the born leader, from the burning desire to excel and win promotion, to the passionate care for the welfare of his subordinates, and at times the ruthlessness required to attain these ends. (This leads me to believe that he has himself been a ranking marine even though he does not state it).

THE PERFECT COMPANION TO THIS EXCELLENT SERIES IS, THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER.Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker Ron Peake is the proud owner of one, this is what he has to say about it:
The workmanship is outstanding, and while I am certainly no expert on pieces of this type, it has a substantial feel to it; when I pick it up there's nothing flimsy about it and one can feel and see the craftsmanship that went into it. The engraved figures are extraordinarily detailed; All in all I couldn't be happier with the Calix and what it represents. Truly Rome is eternal if even now people around the world are still interested in the Legions, and this Calix is a worthy representative of that time and place!

5.0 out of 5 stars Roman history brought to life 6 Mar 2013
By S Mac
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yet again, another amazing book by Mr Peake. With every book he brings his characters to life with stunning ability. You can feel the pain, the happiness, the anger, the fear, everything that the characters in the book. The ability to do this makes me come back to these books again and again.
The author has also done a LOT of research into the book, giving you facts about roman history, where as other authors just make it up as they go.
I could not recommend reading these books enough. You'll learn a lot about Roman history, but you'll also nearly feel like you're right there in the ranks with them.

Beware reader,once you have read these novels by this author you will not be able to go back to the usual suspects writing about the Romans.This series of books about Julias Caesar and his pacification of Gaul are a stunning read based on his commentaries during this period.

The story of Titus Pullus, the Primus Pilus of the Tenth Legion embarks on Marcus Antonius doomed invasion of Parthia. The largest Roman Army at the time to march into hostile lands, where the enemy cannot always be identified as friend or foe. This all takes place in the early days of Marcus Antonius famous lust affair with Cleopatra.
Again, Ron Peakes writing style makes the story a page turner, with excellent attention to detail, narrative and captures the attitudes of soldiers going through every hardship encountered on campaign. And some more.
You can easily imagine yourself marching and fighting with the Legions and the despair they must have felt at the huge loss to life of friends and comrades.
This book and the whole Marching with Caesar series can be highly recommended to any reader of Roman History or history in general.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book picked up the pace again (if you haven't then read the first book!) and it is a thouroughly enthralling read. Well researched and continues the adventures of our first person hero. Mr Peake has a wonderful ability to make you smell and hear the echos of the past. Looking forward to the next one. Hope we don't have to wait too long!

A cracking story, describing the soldier of the time, instead of the generals of the time. The plot is very good and well thought out. I look forward to the next book.

Loved it apart from the appearance at the beginning of Caeser's ghost. The rest was great especially the battle scenes and the death march. Lovely.
