Brilliant - just brilliant! This is a book about a young wannabe roman legionaire who volunteers for the Roman army at the age of 16, pretending to be the requisite 17. The book details his training, his experiences in battle, including the acquisition of the spoils of war. Julius Caesar is the Commander of the force and we learn just how strategic a man he was, but also he inspiring he was. Our hero, Titus Pullus engages fully in battle and we follow his journey as a career soldier, comrade and friend and laugh and weep with him. Full of detail which evidences the undoubtable and considerable research that the author has covered. I cannot praise this book highly enough - tremendous value too - more than 500 pages worth of reading.

I have read quite a few roman novels ,by some awesome authors,including for my sins some deep reference ones ,ceaser,s own Gallic novels amongst these.the author in this book with Titus as the main character has what I think captured how it could really have been around those battles ,campaigns, and more importantly, the camp fires of a elite roman legion ,I take my hat off to you Mr Peake,and hope the second book is as great as this first one .

Very different book to other similar period books and provides the reader a different aspect of war, more of the day to day things that occur as well as the affects that situations can have on a soldier and being in the military as well u can really relate to it am very looking forward to reading the next one :)

I had to read this in instalments as the constant description of one battle after another was a bit like hard work. However, the author really knows his stuff and the explanation of how the army functioned and trained and how Julius Caesar used the troops is really interesting.

I find this rather unique view of a Roman legion gripping.

The story of Ceasar is told through the eyes of Titus Pullar, a member of the 10th Legion. The books see Titus grow from raw Legionary to camp prefect.

I cannot reccomend these books enough

Never have read about the Roman Era before. This Book is a fine pieace of work. The Author has gone into some detail to bring the reader as close as they can be to imagine how it must of been under ceasers rule. Well done Fantastic historical fiction epic.
