The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff concerns that story, although it's not the main part of the tale.
(The whole story of the Ninth Legion disappearing is conjecture, by the way. See livius dot org for a balanced debate about it, or the article by D.B. Campbell in an issue of Ancient Warfare magazine last year.

I believe there's a self-published book out there about the exact topic too - The Last Free Men it's called.
