This is the story of contubernium (a squad) of eight Roman soldiers.
There are no Generals vying for high office,or heroes that have super powers, there are no beautiful women or romance.Just rank... More > and file soldiers, recruited from the slums and the countrysides of the Roman Empire,they have signed on,took the oath, and now have to serve for the next twenty years beneath the Eagle.
This is their story.
Follow them as they march.set camp, argue, and gamble and march again as their Legates leads the Legion towards the borders and war with the Barbarians...
I have made the battle scenes as realistic as possible as are the weapons, ranks, and known tactics
There are violent scenes, bad language throughout, and scenes of brutality and a rape (when a a village is sacked)Ii make no excuses for this inclusion as this was common for any cities or villages that were sacked during those turbulent times.
A full glossary is included
and Ii am open for discussion on my web site www.bobbase.com.uk< Less
