"The Forgotten Legion marches again. On an epic scale, Ben Kane vividly captures the heat and the dust, and the despair of the survivors of a defeated Roman army now forced to fight for their savage captors in the barbarous lands of the east. Three men with nothing left to live for but each other and the memories of a life they fear they will never return to. Tarquinius, Romulus and Brennus battle for their very existence in the face of impossible odds while, back in Rome, Romulus's sister Fabiola is threatened by the same political forces that threaten to destroy the Republic. The Silver Eagle
is an utterly engrossing combination of historical fact and believable fiction that draws the reader in and holds his interest to the last page." (Douglas Jackson, author of Caligula
In a maelstrom of war and treachery, the men of the Forgotten Legion are fighting for their lives.
