Under the Eagle

Historischer Roman von Simon Scarrow

It is 42 AD, and Quintus Licinius Cato has just arrived in Germany as a new recruit to the Second Legion, the toughest in the Roman army. If adjusting to the rigours of military life isn’t difficult enough for the bookish young man, he also has to contend with the disgust of his colleagues when, because of his imperial connections, he is appointed a rank above them. As second-in-command to Macro, the fearless, battle-scarred centurion who leads them, Cato will have more to prove than most in the adventures that lie ahead. Then the men discover that the army’s next campaign will take them to a land of unparalleled barbarity – Britain.

Simon Scarrow (* 1962 in Nigeria) ist ein britischer Autor, der vor allem historische Romane schreibt. Seinen mittlerweile relativ großen Bekanntheitsgrad verdankt Scarrow vor allem der „Adler-Serie“, einer Reihe historischer Romane über die beiden römischen Soldaten Quintus Licinius Cato und Lucius Cornelius Macro, die anfangs in der Legio II Augusta dienen und während der römischen Invasion Britanniens, beginnend im Jahre 42 n. Chr., unter dem Adler kämpfen. “It is a gripping, enjoyable read that provides a thrilling sense of what it must have been like in the heart of a Roman legion as it fights its way through the barbarian hordes. The barracks life also feels very authentic.” (Rezensent) (305 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 260 Seiten noch günstig?
