Marching With Caesar: Rebellion
Marching With Caesar: Rebellion
Price: £3.61

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read!, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smashed it in one long day of travel. Doesn't disappoint in any way and is a very strong stand alone book.

The author 'gets' the military lifestyle(obviously for an ex Marine Infanteer!), its ups and downs, highs and lows and intense comradeship. This comes through in spades at every level and is so palpable you can almost touch it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, would strongly recommend it to both long standing fans and newbies alike. More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet!, 16 April 2014

Wow! I'd like to say this is typical Anthony Riches, but its not. This is way better! He played an absolute blinder here.

It's the best book in the series yet, to be honest, it left me a little exhausted in the end! The amount of research required to produce a book of this variety, depth and range is simple staggering and stands as a testimony to the quality of the author.

I could not recommend this book enough. I can't wait for more!!

Well, what can I say, it's the end of a long road. Great book from an author that clearly understands the military mind at the end of Service.

Well written, rounded narrative with characters of real depth. A simply great conclusion to a fantastic series.

Sad to see him go. Your watch is done, Titus Pullo, soldier of Rome!

High paced, well written and a fantastic read. Smashed it in one sitting. Great to see some military Sci-Fi based on the British military for something different.

More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, 15 Nov 2013

Great read! I have read all four books in short order and have to admit to being hooked. High paced, great characters, and a credible, in depth back plot that supports a very well written narrative.

The mix of high politics, grand strategy, realistic ground combat and space battles that would put Weber to shame, make the Empires at War series a must read item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent!, 13 April 2013
First rate military fiction, well grounded in fact. As good as tom clancy's Red Storm Rising or larry bonds team yankee. Read it in one go, superb.


Exodus: Empires at War: Book 2
Exodus: Empires at War: Book 2
Price: £2.41

5.0 out of 5 stars Great space opera!, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good military scifi read, indepth science with some great battle scenes. Bought both books back to back and read them in a quiet weekend.

Chapter title giving the who and where would help keep track of the multitude of characters set in a, deep, inventive, protein rich storyline. Not a detraction, but a hugely supportive fan from a great read.

Definitely will buy book three on release!
