5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous series, 15 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Rise of Augustus-Marching With Caesar: Volume 5 (Paperback)
OK, listen up troops.

This - sadly - is the penultimate book in an absolutely superb series.

By the power invested in me by the Divine Julius, I hereby award ex-Marine Peake a Triumph. I also decree all the books are mandatory reading for every aspiring military man - West Point, Sandhurst - and even Annapolis, Dartmouth, Cranwell and Colorado Springs. And last - but not least - Parris Island/Quantico etc. They are also good stuff for CEOs and the like. Politicians should also study them to learn how vital loyalty, trust and comradeship are in the world.

(Semi) tongue-in-cheek aside, the "character studies" continue to be as good as ever. The action is gripping. The research is tops. The prose flows.

My last decree is that all of you buy the entire series, go on a hol to say Hawaii or a Mediterranean beach (or stay at home even!) and get reading - with a few gin & tonics nearby for added enjoyment.

I loved every book in the series and Mr. Peake's final command from (Legate) me is to get cracking with lots more yarns in the same vein.
