I have read the marching with Caesar book series since book one and the series so far has been an amazing read. I have to admit the final campaign brought a tear to my eyes and I felt the struggle of what Titus had been through since the first days in the 10th legion.
The ending of Titus and using the writers personal experience to show the comradeship of the time has been a pleasure to read.
I thank you once again Peake for giving me a great series to read and not having to wait for one book a year and forget the story line.
Can't wait to read the next instalment.
Once again Peake your a legend in my book please please keep the series coming I would of been more than happy to pay slightly more for the kindle option!

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.

The whole series of ' marching with Caesar' has been a fantastic read and this doesn't disappoint. It is well written, exciting and sad . I stayed up till 3am to finish it as I couldn't put it down.

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!
