Six years later Rome is finally ready to unleash Her vengeance on the barbarians. The Emperor Tiberius has sent his adopted son, Germanicus Caesar, into Germania with an army of forty-thousand legionaries. The come not on a mission of conquest, but one of annihilation. With them is a young legionary named Artorius. For him the war is a personal vendetta; a chance to avenge his brother, who was killed in Teutoburger Wald. In Germania Arminius knows the Romans are coming. He realizes that the only way to fight the legions is through deceit, cunning, and plenty of well-placed brute force. In truth he is leery of Germanicus, knowing that he was trained to be a master of war by the Emperor himself. The entire Roman Empire held its collective breath as Germanicus and Arminius faced each other in what would become the most brutal and savage campaign the world had seen in a generation; a campaign that could only end in a holocaust of fire and blood.

A meticulously detailed account of life as a Roman legionary in the last days of the Roman Empire—from battle to rations, camp duties to clothing In 400 AD, Roman rule in Britain was collapsing as the thinly stretched empire was besieged on all sides. This guide explores all aspects of Late Roman military life, from recruitment to weaponry, marriage to wages, warfare to religion. It explores the world of the Roman soldier through the eyes of one man, posted to a British garrison at the edge of the empire, and follows the soldier's life through training, battle, marriage, and business dealings, finally following him south as he leaves Britain for good in defense of Rome. When the legionary finally escapes the worst posting in the Roman Empire, it is only to join what effectively became a death march over the Alps, without food or shelter. Readers of this mesmerizing account will know what it was like to face the chanted battle cry and the charge and slashing axes of the Goths, and why the order "March out!" was so terrifying.

“A pleasure to read and nearly impossible to put down.” –Army Times “Embodies an experience that many have enjoyed in fantasy–few in reality.” –The Washington Post The French Foreign Legion–mysterious, romantic, deadly–is filled with men of dubious character, and hardly the place for a proper Englishman just nineteen years of age. Yet in 1960, Simon Murray traveled alone to Paris, Marseilles, and ultimately Algeria to fulfill the toughest contract of his life: a five-year stint in the Legion. Along the way, he kept a diary. Legionnaire is a compelling, firsthand account of Murray’s experience with this legendary band of soldiers. This gripping journal offers stark evidence that the Legion’s reputation for pushing men to their breaking points and beyond is well deserved. In the fierce, sun-baked North African desert, strong men cracked under brutal officers, merciless training methods, and barbarous punishments. Yet Murray survived, even thrived. For he shared one trait with these hard men from all nations and backgrounds: a determination never to surrender. “The drama, excitement, and color of a good guts-and-glory thriller.” –Dr. Henry Kissinger From the Paperback edition.

Brucius is dead, his legions destroyed. The Gai-Dubous are believed extinct and the Death Waker has not been seen in almost four years. And Andross the Invincible, the one who used the Orb of Torjen and took its curse upon himself, is presumed dead, though his body has never been found. Now a new threat has begun to form, climbing up from volcanic lands to replace the old dangers with even darker, more ancient ones. The kings of Upperworld, Bracchus and Korsoko among them, must stop rebuilding in order to defend their lands once again. Amidst the turmoil, the old group begins to form as rumors escalate that Andross is, indeed, still alive somewhere, but slowly dying. Ever-loyal to their old friend, the knights set forth to rescue the accursed Tribal, battling ogres, braving monsters and venturing into the foreboding city of the Death Waker, and finally down into the enigmatic depths of Lowerworld itself, where a dark shadow threatens all that lay within its reach. And in that journey, they will face not only the pain of their own individual pasts, but they will also learn the past of their own world, and struggle to maintain hope in a future that will change everything.
