Lovereading view...

A stunning stand-alone Roman epic historical from the author of the bestselling Vespasian series. A.D. 9: In the depths of the Teutoburg Wald, in a landscape riven by ravines, darkened by ancient oak and bisected by fast-flowing streams, Arminius of the Cherusci led a confederation of six Germanic tribes in the annihilation of three Roman legions. This is the story of how Arminius came to turn his back on the people who raised him and went on to commit a betrayal so great and so deep, it echoed through the ages.

If you like Robert Fabbri you might also like to read books by Simon Scarrow, Harry Sidebottom and Ben Kane.


Arminius The Limits of Empire by Robert Fabbri

One man's greatest victory. Rome's greatest defeat. Deep in the forest almost twenty thousand men were massacred without mercy; fewer than two hundred of them ever made it back across the Rhine. To Rome's shame, three sacred Eagles were lost that day. But Arminius wasn't brought up in Germania Magna - he had been raised as a Roman.
