Terrific Story of the Roman Legions
on 25 February 2016
This is the sixth volume of this Roman saga featuring Macro and Cato two Roman legionnaires who contrive to be present at most of the diverse campaigns of the period. Most of the stories are based around historical events and people, .Most of the historical detail and facts are accurate as befitting the work of a history teacher and enthusiast of the Roman era and the writing style is comfortable and easy to read. Simon Scarrow has done for Roman history what Bernard Cornwell did for the Peninsular Campaign.
Overall, the books are very readable, and importantly very entertaining. These earlier volume are by and large better thoughtout and less 'commercial' than some of the later ones. I have the complete collection on my bookshelf and am now part way through re-reading the series from the beginning and am finding it a joy.
