This review is from: Masters of Rome (Vespasian) (Hardcover)
Another cracking read in this excellent and exciting series - a real page-turner. The first half is bloody battles in Britain, with some really scary Druids (probably accurate), the second almost equally bloody politics in the Rome of Claudius, as Vespasian moves from the simple certainties of army life to the murky and disturbing role of climbing the greasy pole for position and influence. Each was fascinating and detailed, and largely factual. I greatly look forward to future volumes.
