This review is from: Legion (Paperback)
I've been interested in Ancient Rome ever since seeing "Gladiator." I happened upon Altimari's "Legion" and loved it. Through the eyes of a Greek scholar and tutor, the reader experiences the daily lives and battle strategies of Roman soldiers. "Legion" is the perfect book--a balance between learning facts and details about a subject and getting lost in an exciting story. Oh, and woman-to-woman, be prepared to fall in love with "Legion's" Rufio the Centurion.
