This review is from: Marching With Caesar-Antony and Cleopatra: Part II-Cleopatra (Kindle Edition)
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. RW succeeds in bringing to life, characters that we have all heard about at sometime in our lives. His portrayal of Cleopatra, is a far cry from the dry facts of history or the glamourous versions seen in the movies. Likewise with Mark Anthony. Being an ex soldier, I can certainly identify with the life of the common legionary, that he depicts in his books. It seems that little has changed in the last two thousand years(weaponry excepted!) for the ordinary soldier, from the camaraderie of units and inter unit rivalries, to the officers that lord it over the troops. This book has it all! Eagerly awaiting RWs next offering!
