Book Description
In A.D. 9, an army of barbarians ferociously butchered three entire Roman legions in a desolate German forest. The loss of one-quarter of its European army was a blow from which the Roman Empire never recovered. Archaeologist Peter Wells provides the first graphic details of this monumental confrontation, based on the recent discovery of the site of the massacre.

    This is one of my all-time favorite histories. The book is amazing. It is also highly accessible and easy to read, which is no mean feat for ancient history.
