This review is from: Soldier of Rome: The Last Campaign: Book Six of the Artorian Chronicles: 6 (Paperback)
A fine conclusion to this series about the Roman legions, covering the invasion of Britain in the name of Emperor Claudius. The organization and disposal of the army is covered in interesting detail, as is the political situation amongst the tribes. The battle scenes are, as always, exciting and gruesomely bloody. I have enjoyed the series.
Now the nerdy bit: there is an odd mixture of American and British English in a few places, and of metric and Imperial units of distance - Roman soldiers did not speak of metres, which had not been invented. I did wince at the number of sentences ending with prepositions, but this is a sign of my 1950s education, and is not necessarily wrong. Some thankfully rare spelling mistakes, which I can't be bothered to list, except for the constant annoying use of 'capitol' when he means 'capital'. Poor proof-reading is a hazard with these self-published books, but the flow is not much interrupted.
