Another execptional book in this series from RW Peake. Clearly other than being a soldier, this man had another oustanding calling that I'm really glad he found. Titus Pullus and the next generations of his progeny provide the mileau of an epic and well researched tale of perhaps the most tumultuous and formative episode in the history of Rome. Well researched, well written and clearly the similarities of being a soldier have crossed the eons as Peake is a natual at capturing the details, small and big challenges of a soldiers lot. Absolutely well done.

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!

A 5 star series. Read the seven books in sequence and a classic series. Followed Titus Pullus from his formative years through to his final days, fought his battles and felt his pains. Now time for a break from the Romans, must get back to Bernard Cornwell and sort out a few Danes!
