Another feature of this book is the prologue, with the author and story griping the reader straight away and throwing her/him into the story within the first twenty pages. A young and talented gladiator unexpectedly earns his freedom at the point of his sword and exercises brutal retribution before leaving Italy for Germania. This gladiator, one of the main characters of the book, is one Thumelicus, a historical character about whom little is known except that he was raised in captivity in Italy after his pregnant mother was handed over to the Romans and made into a gladiator. Apart from that, the (Roman) sources are silent about him and we do not know what happened to the son of one of their greatest enemies
Thumelicus (the Latinised form of his name) was the son of the Cheruscan warlord Arminius (also the Latinised version of the name) who destroyed three Roman legions and their auxiliaries at Teutoburg in 9 AD and then tried to resist the resurgent Roman war machine. The whole book is about the story of his life, from the moment he was himself handed over as a hostage with his brother to his death and it is told through the reading of his father’s memoirs with various witnesses, including Romans, stepping in at various moments to add their own perspectives and memories.Read more ›
Arminius: The Limits Of Empire was an extremely satisfyingly stand alone novel that delves into Arminius' back story and tells his legendary hatred for the Romans in superb fashion.
