LoveReading View on Claudius

The Roman invasion of Britain with the Brits trying to consolidate an army out of old enemies and tribes who have never trusted each other up against an army with elephants and brilliant tactics.  We all know what happened but the telling of it here is thrilling stuff.  Good escapism with excellent battle scenes, it follows Caligula with the same slave, Rufus, our hero, but is easily read on its own.


Comparison: Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow, Harry Sidebottom.
