SAFE READING - NO SPOILERS

I have read all the "Eagle" series in order, followed the careers of Cato and Macro with great interest and eagerly await the already pre-ordered "Praetorian". Although I have the hardcovers, I bought them individually and, at current prices, it would be a considerably cheaper approach than this.
Not the heights of Literature (nor pretending to be), but well-written nevertheless, the series is filled with his great depth of knowledge, enthusiasm for and interest in the Romans.
Cunningly peopled with all the names from our history lessons - Vespasian, Cladius, Caratacus, Boudica - and the Roman campaigns to extend the Empire but centred on two Roman soldiers who become unlikely close friends, Macro and Cato, their careers and friendship carries the stories along. Following them closely allows the intimate details of human life to be in the forefront while the everyday lives of Roman soldiers and the political intrigues of the Roman Empire provide the backdrop.

PS I found it helpful to have a one-page list of Roman army ranks, which I used as a bookmark, and I had the odd glance at ancient maps (not mine I hasten to add!).

Ordered the 9 book set for a Christmas Present, I was very disappointed when the books arrived as one of the books was clearly 2nd hand, the spine was all creased and the paper was a different colour from the rest of the books ( probably hoped I wouldn't notice). I bought them as new NOT 2ND HAND. If I had wanted 2nd hand I could have got them a lot cheaper than this. As they were a present (and I had clearly marked this on my order) I had the embarrassment of explaining this to the recipient. The delivery note said contact us if you have any problems but didn't give a contact number or e-mail addess. Never Again!!!!!!
Amazon should companies sell 2nd hand goods as new on your website????!!!!

Totally addictive with the touch of authenticity that shows the detail research Simon Scarrow does with all his super novels. Should be read in chronological order to get the best out of the series.
