Simon Scarrow - Britannia (Eagles of The Empire) (2nd Hand Hardback)
Cato & Marco Book (Eagles of The Empire) Book #14
Now a Sunday Times bestseller! Simon Scarrow's veteran Roman soldier heroes face a cunning and relentless enemy in Britannia, the unforgettable fourteenth novel in the bestselling Eagles of the Empire series. Includes maps and charts.
Roman Britain, AD 52.
The western tribes, inspired by the Druids' hatred of the Romans, prepare to make a stand. But can they match the discipline and courage of the legionaries?
Wounded during a skirmish, Centurion Macro remains behind in charge of the fort as Centurion Cato leads an invasion deep into the hills. Cato's mission: to cement Rome's triumph over the natives by crushing the Druid stronghold. But with winter drawing in, the terrain is barely passable through icy rain and snowstorms.
When Macro's patrols report that the natives in the vicinity of the garrison are thinning out, a terrible suspicion takes shape in the battle-scarred soldier's mind. Has the acting Governor, Legate Quintatus, underestimated the enemy, his military judgement undermined by ambition?
If there is a sophisticated and deadly plan afoot, it's Cato and his men who will pay the price.
