Arminius

ByWilliam Walling

The 1st of a 2 book series (THE VARIAN DISASTER to follow) tells the story of a barbarian Legionary, later a Roman citizen, and later still an equestrian knight, who led a coalition of tribal warriors to victory in a famous battle annihilating three entire Roman legions. Some contemporary historians revere this distant figure from the shadows of European antiquity as a liberating crusader, others as, “The noble savage gone wrong.” This tale of Imperial Rome and ancient Germania centers on the travails, defeats, and victories of a Cheruscan tribal princeling Roman scribes refer to by the Latinized name Arminius. A culture hero—possibly even the legendary Wagnerian hero of heroes, Siegfried—he is credited with organizing and consummating the total destruction of three Roman legions in a crucial battle, thereby conceivably changing the course of European history by making Caesar Augustus, and subsequent emperors, abort the conquest of germanorum magnus.
