Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Written in readable, popular style, Caesar's Legion is a must for military buffs and anyone interested in Roman history at a critical point in European civilization.” T. R. Fehrenbach, author of Lone Star
“This is a short history of Julius Caesar's fabled Tenth Legion, one of the main instruments in his many conquests and something of a military legend that lasted long after Caesar’s death. Dando-Collins has a grand, gripping story to tell here: We get massive battles, hard-won victories, and a parade of memorable characters. This is certainly a vigorous and entertaining way to read Roman history.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
