Product description

In 9 AD, the 17th, 18th and 19th Roman Legions and their auxilliary troops under the command of Publius Quinctilius Varus vanished in the boggy wilds of Germania.

This book is a masterfull retelling of the author's search to discover the Varus battlefield. His well-paced, carefully conceived and vivid writing style makes for a compelling read.
